Silk Quaker bonnet, American, ca. 1850. Shows the simplicity of form and exquisite workmanship that Quaker hats were renowned for. Instead of the deep pleats often used by Quakers, this model is gathered where the crown meets the brim, giving the illusion of being pleated. "Belonged to Mrs. John J. Merritt, great grandmother of Winthrop Trowbridge who lived at 114-116 Columbia Heights from 1827-1871".
