Looks like two clam shells to me.

When I was in my teens I wore my hair VERY long, and sometimes braided into a crown. My mum insisted I wear a hat to church (we're talking the early 50's) so I found a little doily very similar to this and put it inside the crown. I had on a "hat" but she still wasn't happy.

I had something like this, some years ago - it had started out to be a doily, only it cupped, so when I put my hair in a knot, I put the ex-doily over it as decoration and loose-end control.

I went to Catholic school and we had these awful little beanies we hsd to wear to Mass.

That's so cute. Better than the wide headband type things we used to wear to church when I was a teen. After a while, the spring in them hurt.

Yup. The springs began to feel as if they were going to meet behind your eyeballs!
