Baby Hat from China
This tiny hat from the Miao people is perfect for a small baby. Simple in style, but sweet in decoration, it could be worn by either a boy or girl. Quilted red silk satin forms the hat, with small 'ears' formed by stuffing the corners. The front panel is silk and decorated with lively hand-embroidered botanical motifs in silk. The hat is not new, but does not show a lot of wear like most we see now- probably because it was quickly outgrown. It would be very cute displayed in a collection.
Size: 7.75 in. x 5 in. when flat; about 5 in. across when open.
