Early 1900s Embroidered Cotton Voile Boudoir Cap
Feel as fresh and cheerful as a spring garden when you slip into this wonderful Victorian era chapeau. Originally advertised as ideal "for the smart bedroom woman," boudoir caps were essential to hide undressed hair and to keep a lady looking presentable during breakfast or morning tea with her beau.
This cap is particularly lovely with its pastel embroidery in shades of pink, green, blue and lavender. Crown of cap is open to support the Gibson Girl hairstyle. The front is trimmed in petite lace and embellished with delicate embroidered flowers.
While 1920s boudoir caps are quite common, these earlier toppers are more of a rarity.
Condition: Very Good
There are no holes or runs in the voile. However, there is slight staining on the front upper ruffle. This may or may not come out in a cleaning. Priced accordingly.
