While earlier bonnets of the 19th Century had lower brims, by mid-century Spoon Bonnets, which featured increasingly high brims and more elaborate trimmings, became the vogue. This low crowned spoon bonnet is made of tightly braided straw and features pointed edges on the brim, to allow for at "curtain" (bavolet) in the back to protect the neck from sun.

This bonnet is suitable form 1850-1860's and any Civil War era events you have planned.
This bonnet (pink plaid ribbons, as shown below) was recently seen in the Sight and Sound film, I Heard the Bells, the story of how William Wordsworth penned the poem which became the Christms Carol, "I Heard the Bells on Christmas Day".

Each bonnet is one of a kind, but this one usually features 1.5" ribbon ties, a larger style flower on one side with coordinating smaller flowers, and a small under brim decoration. When you choose your colors, I will find ribbon, flowers and/or berries to complete your look.

If you have specific colors and ideas in mind, please contact me or leave me a note. If you would like another variation of this bonnet, feel free to contact me about custom colors and trimmings. I'm always happy to try something new.

This bonnet's measurements are as follows:
Brim=7.5" deep, Point to Point (over the top of the brim)=24", crown=5" across

Julia is also available as an untrimmed straw bonnet for your decorating pleasure.
