The market bonnet is versatile 18th-century headwear. Black is by far the most common color for market bonnets, many of which were silk. This is truly a piece that looks good on everyone. The simple bow trim adds a classic touch. These are one size fits all.
I wish that it came with the historical references to it. I work at a living history museum and need to find historical references to what I wear if it’s something other than what I’m given.
I am very pleased with the bonnet. It was a very good purchase.
