    Bib? I think more likely a small collar. There are no ties to tie it on the baby and it wouldn’t protect clothing. What do you think?

      Hi Sue. You are absolutely right about there being no ties but what else could it be? It is the most strange shape and size. It is too small for a child or adult collar. The only other thing that we considered was perhaps a decorative motif for a 1950′-60’s dress pocket????
      Thanks for contributing and any other ideas are most welcome.
      Sincerely
      Admin
