Vintage Victorian Edwardian 1900s Sleep Cap
I wish I had a better way to display this because its really so so great. Thisis a little mop cap, or sleep cap from the very ealiest 1900s, or possibly a little before. Looks and feels like a silk cotton blend perhaps. Ivory crochet with jst the right amount of age to the color. Pretty ruffled edge and little floral medallions at either side. There wouuld have been a ribbon or cord woven through the band of wee squares about an inch from the edge. That would have then been pulled tight and tied in a bow to adjust it to fit the head, giving it that well known mop cap look. That is no longer with us, alas, so one can add whatever color or type of ribbon they like best. Will ship flat. :)
Excellent vintage condition. Just the age and foxing to the color is all. Which to me only adds to it's charm.
