Batenburg Lace

Mother said that this lovely baby bonnet was created by Grandma Louise for her baby, Russell. The hand worked batenburg lace is difficult and time consuming, but so beautiful. I don't know if Dad ever wore it, but it would have gone with the classic baby dress that was in his baby portrait.

What a beautiful, well preserved treasure.

Loving hand-sewn stitches went into all the baby clothes that our grandma Louise made for her first-born son.
