Mantilla (Man-Til'-A). A woman's head-covering, often of lace, which falls down upon the shoulders and may be used as a veil; worn in Spain and the Spanish colonies, in Genoa, and elsewhere. There are three kinds of mantillas which form the toilette of the Spanish senorita. The first is composed of white blonde, used only on state occasions, birthdays, bullfights and Easter Monday. The second is black blonde, trimmed with deep lace. The third, which is used for ordinary wear, is made of black silk, trimmed with velvet. The Spanish woman's mantilla is held sacred by law, and cannot he seized for debt.
