Vintage 1940s White Linen Christening Wedding Hanky Bonnet
Vintage Baby Clothes: Vintage Baby Bonnets
This beautiful vintage bonnet is made from a delicate lace edged handkerchief. The top is adorned with a tiny white satin bow, and the bonnet ties under the chin with narrow white satin ribbon.
The tradition is for a baby girl to wear this as a christening cap. Saved as an heirloom, a few stitches are clipped so it reverts to a beautiful linen hanky to be carried by the bride on her wedding day.
What a lovely tradition! The perfect christening gift for that beautiful baby girl.
