Antique Mid-1800s Civil War Black Mourning Poke Bonnet Vintage Victorian Hat. Wonderful antique mid-1800s Civil War black mourning poke bonnet Victorian hat. The style of the poke bonnet manifests the demure and modest style that followed the young Queen Victoria's accession to the throne in 1838. This all-black example was probably worn for mourning, a long-standing custom that the Queen elevated to a social institution, especially after the death of her beloved husband, Prince Albert. I have had this hat for years. I bought it about 30 years ago in an antique shop in a small town in Pennsylvania. It was lovingly handmade with several different materials.

It appears that the hat has a full black structure with an intricately and beautifully woven black fine straw overlay. I adore that you can see the brown thread used to attach the woven overlay and bottom ruffle! I have lightened the inside photo so you can better see the structure of it. The interior is a solid and uniform black (and clean-maybe a little dust) but the lightened photo makes it appear faded or stained but it is not.

Overall excellent condition for its age about 160-170 years! The very edge of the opening has some wear to the black material in places (see photos). There are a few tears in the ribbon ties. Other than that, its great! Update--as I was sitting on the floor packing it I didn't realize that my foot was on one of the ends of the ribbon and I swiftly lifted the hat and ripped the bottom few inches of the ribbon tie off.

9.5 from the back center to front edge. It is about 20 from where the ribbon attaches to the hat, then up around the edge and down to where the ribbon attaches on the other side.
