Unknown artist - Woman of Stuben, Austria, with Goldhaube, 1775. The 'Gold Hood' which had been worn only by rich women became popular with merchants' wives, and then with country women for their special occasion 'festival' headdress - substituting gold-colored silk thread and sequins for the pearls & jewels. As with many regional costumes, the style of the hat identified the wearer as being from a particular area of the country.

Reiner, Joseph - Portrait of a Young Woman with a Goldhaube, 1892. The sequins of the goldhaube were sometimes attached loosely, so they could dangle and glitter in the light. "Golden sunshine is sparkling around my forehead: Should I, beautiful one, not be a sun on earth". (Thanks to Germanisches National Museum for the quote.)

Lingenfelder, Eugen (1862–1930) - Old Woman in Traditional Costume (goldhaube). An expert could tell you what region she's from by the unusual shape of her gold cap. She has one of the most beautifully-painted faces, for a painting that mainly features the regional costume. She looks like a delightful grandma or auntie!
