Regency bonnets, hats, & caps

This board focuses on extant examples of (mostly) western women's bonnets, hats, caps, turbans, calashes, veils and other head coverings of (roughly) the extended regency/federal/empire eras. (Disclaimer: I'm NOT a historian - this is a collection of resources available online that appeal to me and is not original research.) Enjoy! :-)

Cottage Bonnet ca 1810, Meg Andrews. More photos available. Of fine herringbone plaited straw, with shallow brim and bavorlet, 10 in;26 cm across. Condition: Well worn. The back bavolet has some pieces missing from the last row. The velvet ribbons are worn and cut. The wires inside are damaged (photo available) and the lining missing. I assume it had lining.
