Content: Written on border: "Oct. 1853" Printed on border: "We give in the present article three of the prettiest caps that will appear this season. They may be worn by ladies as young as twenty for breakfast, or as invalids, and are not unsuitable for the dinner or evening headdress of matrons. Young unmarried ladies should not venture on caps, as nothing gives a more mature air to a youthful face and figure." "No. 1. Invalid's cap of fine French bands of broad edging." "No. 2 is somewhat similar in material and design. It has a more coquettish air, however, and is intended for breakfast." "No. 3. An evening or dinner dress cap, composed of lace and a sprig of blush roses, buds, and drooping foliage." Includes additional text.
Source note: Godey''s lady''s book. (Philadelphia : [s.n.] 1830-).
