1880 - 1950 For special occasions, Chinese mothers dress their young children in hats representing powerful animals such as tigers. It was believed that tigers frightened away evil spirits and ensured a prosperous future. While fierce in nature, the tiger on this hat is portrayed as non-hostile and charming. Behind each ear is a beautiful embroidered butterfly symbolizing happiness.
