- Not exactly in answer to your question, but... You can find pictures of
an extant child's caul from the sixteenth century in:
Flury-Lemberg, Mechthild. (1988). Textile conservation and research : a
documentation of the textile department on the occasion of the twentieth
anniversary of the Abegg Foundation / Mechthild Flury-Lemberg. Bern :
p262 Child's Hairnet from the Tombs of the Counts von Stubenberg
"The little hairnet is made of gold thread, knotted together into
hexagons. This creates a radiating pattern from the centre of the front.
The net can be tightly drawn by a fine cord which is tied at the back. The
above mentioned silk ribbon, trimmed with seed pearls and gold plaques,
decorates the edge and is also knotted at the back."
