Pussy-cat Bow - 1892


St. Paul Daily Globe, July 25, 1892, page 8.  Chronicling America.


Narrow velvet and little pussy-cat bows are seen on many of the summer costumes of light material.


Pussy-cat Bow - 1902.


Lady's Realm, an Illustrated Monthly Magazine (London), Volume 13, page 287. HathiTrust.


Really there is something extremely fascinating in a "pussy-cat" bow; it is so feminine, frivolous, and charming, and, somehow, anything light just under the face, relieving the sombre tint of winter toilettes, is always becoming.
