This bonnet is trimmed with wide ribbon ties , narrow ribbon trimming flowers and feathers, but is also available as a plain blank under the name, "Molly". 

Straw Capote bonnets (scoop shaped) like this one were worn during the early years of the Regency, as both these period fashion plates below (first: The Gallery of Fashion, 1794-1798, Second: 1806, Costumes Parisians) show. The capote bonnet was a popular style as it easily 'accommodated the modish hair styles of that era, which were short or piled on top of the head.'

The final image shows dancers wearing this bonnet style (right and left, center dancer is wearing Eliza) so you can see how it fits.
