1908 Sears Catalog ad: Hand Made Poke Bonnet

. Wednesday, July 24, 2013

All hand made poke bonnet style beautifully trimmed. $2.38. No. 18K15475. Our very finest poke bonnet style for girls up to twelve years of age. This child's hat is strictly handmade on a wire frame with the entire upper and under brim very closely covered with shirred pink milliners' mull with numerous rows of tucking. This gives a soft, fluffy  effect and is exceptionally pretty. The large belt crown is entirely covered with silk pyroxylin braid in pink. A large wreath of silk and velvet geraniums in pink with green folliage is artistically applied across the entire upper brim, being bunched heavily in front. A pretty bow of white taffeta ribbon appears in the midst of this wreath. The hat if finished with long ribbon ties in white. This hat can be ordered in pink as described; light blue or cardinal with flowers to match; white with pink or light blue flowers. Do not forget to state colors. Price $2.38.
