Smoking or lounge cap. Probably American or European in make though designed in a traditional Turkish or Arabic style. Mid-19th century.

The velvet base is covered, at top, with a blue silk thread, and a bullion type embroidery, designed in a floral motif; the tassels appear to be a cotton thread/bullion mix, with the interior of the bell wood. Minor wear resulting from use.
