This rare antique gold embroidered Goldhaube headdress bonnet dates from 1820. It is made of a rigid rag cardboard base with an ecru silk fabric covering, encrusted over with gold bullion metal embroidery and sequins. The metallic threads are hand stitched in a raised padded stitch embroidery couching work floral design. There is black, white and gold lace trim edging around the face, and silk brocade ribbon trim draping down the back. The inside is lined in linen with remnants of silk fabric on the back crown. There is a linen strap with hook and eye closure for securing under the chin. This early European Goldhaube or Bodenhaube headdress cap bonnet was the traditional headdress worn by the women of West Germany, Westfalen, the Emsland region from 1755 through about 1850. These caps took 200-300 working hours to create, at the price of several monthly wages. The gold caps were worn primarily by married women. This beautiful bonnet measures 15 inches around the face, with 21 inch long ribbons hanging down the back. It is in good wearable condition with only some minor wear. This is truly a rare early find.
