The Spoon bonnet is a headgear, between a house bonnet and a hat. Bonnets were popular during the first half of the 19th century, but practicality fell out of fashion by the 1850s. The Spoon bonnet is just a head piece that does not protect from wind, sun or rain. The Spoon bonnet is actively decorated with frills, ruches, flowers, ribbons and laces. A spoon bonnet is very similar to a Poke bonnet, but its main difference is that the brim of the hat completely reveals the face and forehead. A spoon bonnet was made of straw, fabric, satin. By the mid-1860s, the popularity of the spoon bonnets was declining. Hairstyles are becoming more voluminous and the ladies are trying not to hide them.
