Man’s Cap, anonymous, c. 1750

Man’s Cap, anonymous, c. 1750

painting, h 30cm × d 17cm More details

To our knowledge this is the only extant example of a chintz cap. In the Netherlands such caps were worn by gentlemen indoors. Since the model was unknown in India, the pattern – along with instructions for painting the design partly on the front and partly on the back of the piece of cotton – had to be sent from the Netherlands to India.
