Description: A white crocket cap, doilie style, with a rosetta design centre back. There is a drawstring on the back and two drawstrings in the front at the hairline. There is a 2.5 cm crochet border around the cap.

Pioneer settlers used caps to help keep dust and cooking grease out of a housewife's hair. They were very common and easy to make. The cap was purchased at an auction at the farm of Elizabeth Black, RR 4, Ayr, Ontario. It is a fourth generation farm. The cap belonged to Elizabeth Black's mother.
