Nightcap, Anonymous, c. 1808

linen (material), h 24cm × w 52cm. More details

In former times, when houses were unheated, it was customary to wear a nightcap in bed. This one has a knitted, scalloped edge with a repeating pattern of a potted shrub. On the crown, birds with long tail feathers face each other. A small knitted tab on the top of the cap serves as ornamentation.
