Dated to the 2nd half of the 18th century, the bonnet is a unique and rare exhibit. It was made in Poland from imported lace. Its shape is modelled in such a way that it clings tightly to the head, covering the ears and forehead with a semi-circular arch. The entire bonnet is decorated with chess lace, often found in Jewish products, which was made of metal thread or plaques. The lace was arranged in a pattern of seven curling stems with stylized leaves and flowers, reaching from the root to the top of the bonnet. In addition, it is decorated with lace rosettes with sequins, silvery and gold beads, and brown and blue beads inside. The edge of the bonnet, in the section adjacent to the face, is trimmed with white, wrinkled tulle.
Bonnets were the most popular and decorative headwear worn by married, pious Jewish women who, after marriage, cut their hair and covered their heads. There were different types of bonnets – more modest ones that were worn every day, more ornate festive varieties, and light, batiste types that were worn at night. The decorative form of the Nowy Sącz bonnet indicates that it belonged to the festive category of headgear. They were usually made of silk brooch, brocade and velvet. Very often they were entirely covered with embroidery, sequins, plaques and trimmed with lace.
