Antique Early 19th c Baby Cap Ayrshire Hand Stitched Christening Bonnet For Infant or Doll.

Lovely finely worked bonnet/Cap all tiny hand stitched and assembled on very fine fabric.

All Adjustment cords are working for gathering and fit.
The Ayrshire embroidery is beautiful ... the tiny 5 lobed flowers all are infilled with different designed Ayrshire needle lace as is the lobed edging around the most unusual knitted Crown.

A lovely Collectors item or ideal for a Baptism
Very nice clean condition just one almost invisible pin hole in front band and a tiny repair in crown ( I think for nearly 200 years old it has done well)
It measures approx 12 inches around face.

Please take into account this tiny Cap is very small and photos tend to magnify.
Would fit a small new born baby or a doll.

PS. It has blue tissue inside
