THE CROWN ISSUE

Crown caps, (known as cap-crown or fond de bonnet) was the headdress worn by beautiful women who graced the French court in the 17th and 18th century. Orginally designed to keep their hair in place, they became a very fashionable accessory for women's dress and an inportant item for the bride's trousseau.
