Bonnets were popular among women in the 19th century and signified status. Worn both indoors and outdoors, bonnets kept hair tidy and kept dust out. The type of lace on this bonnet is called “limerick,” or “needlerun,” which consists of embroidery on a net ground. Tiny metal pins line the edges of the starched wings.
