This early European Goldhaube or Bodenhaube headdress cap bonnet was the traditional headdress worn by the women of West Germany, Westfalen, the Emsland region from 1755 through about 1850. These caps took 200-300 working hours to create, at the price of several monthly wages. The gold caps were worn primarily by married women. This beautiful bonnet measures 15 inches around the face, with 21 inch long ribbons hanging down the back.

Dress c. 1780-1790.  I wish I could talk to the lady who wore this!

I wonder if a dress like this would look good if the embroidered parts were pieced quilting? or would it look rediculous.
