Gold bonnet (clothing)

from Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Gold Dome is the umbrella term for a variety of costumes associated hoods of women in southern Germany and in Austria . From the 17th century onwards, they were worn by citizens in the cities and later also in the countryside. The silk and gold threads woven in, gold and sequin embroidery , lahn and tinsel are characteristic.

There are gold bonnets in various regional forms, such as B. the Munich Riegelhaube , the Regina hood and the Radhaube in Swabia, Kranl, Nürnberger Flinderhaube, Linzer Goldhaube, Wachau "Brettlhaube" and many others.

In the development of the Linz gold bonnet from earlier bonnet shapes, antique influences from the Napoleonic era ( Empire style ) played a role.

The extinction of traditional costumes in the 19th century brought most gold bonnets to the brink of oblivion. Today they are cared for and worn again in the course of the traditional costume renewal movement and their production is taught in courses. Because of the high workload (e.g. over 300 hours for a bolt hood) and the correspondingly high costs, they are almost exclusively manufactured in-house. Especially in Upper Austria and Salzburg, the gold bonnet is now worn again by women on high church holidays.
