The Mob Cap

Mob cap

During the Georgian period (1714-1837) the bonnet became high fashion among the middle class and even aristocracy. Then during the French Revolution, the name “Mob Cap” came into being when the poorer women who were involved in the riots wore them. By the Victorian period (1837-1901), faded from the upper classes, but lingered as the head covering of servants and nurses only smaller and plainer.
