With All the Frills Upon It: Hats and Bonnets from the Collection
April 6th 2017 to September 25th 2017
Paid Entry ($15.00)
Merchant's House Museum, 29 East Fourth Street, New York, 10003
"In the 19th century, millinery was an art and the hat the focal point of every fashionable ensemble. A collection of hats worn by the Tredwell women will be on display, perhaps some adorned for Fifth Avenue’s Easter Parade, which began in the 1880s. Hats of silk, felt, straw, horsehair, and even one of onion skin – adorned with feathers, lace, ribbons and beads – evoke an era when women never left home without it – their hat that is. And they frequently wore head covering indoors, as well."
Entry included with general museum admission.
