Tuesday’s Treasure

What glorious item did I find during my volunteer  work yesterday?  Lets see….I’d have to say it is the 1860-70 head-dress.  It  is a bit dingy and rumpled now but I bet in its day it was very pretty!1860b

If ever I make a ball gown, I will make a head-piece like this.  Sigh.1860c

Tons of lace and stuff in the back.  With the purple and black I wonder if it was a late mourning accessory.
