Will you be wearing a bonnet for Easter?

——-
The bonnet pictured here with beige lace, lavender grosgrain ribbon, bows and streamers, and lined in silk is called a poke bonnet. Traditionally, poke bonnets have a long brim which extends past the face and adds more room for decoration. This style was especially popular in the 19th century. This bonnet was donated to the Museum by L F Howell.
