Object Name Bonnet
Description Small black bonnet with ostrich feather and jet beading designed to sit towards the back of head. It has a strong head band like frame covered with black satin ribbon and the remnants of black sequins on black net. There is a rosette of black satin near the crown right hand side. Just behind the rosette is a black ostrich feather which projects upwards.

The main body of the bonnet is made from a shiny black raffia type material and lined with black silk. There is further black bead decoration at the back. Two long black satin ribbons hang from either edge. One has a mock bow attached making it look longer. They can be joined with a snap fastener rather than tied.
