1600-1620 English Nightcap at the Glasgow Museums, Glasgow - From the curators' comments: "Traditionally plain linen nightcaps were worn in bed at night. However, at the end of the sixteenth and into the early seventeenth century embroidered nightcaps became popular. Their name of these embellished caps is a misnomer as these nightcaps were not worn in bed, but were a type of informal undress wear known as deshabille (undress), a relaxed dress style worn at home."
