I'm pretty sure that that cone is a "schultüte". German children usually get one when they start going to school.
I agree with Ana. It believe that this cone was part of an early tradition. 'School Cones' were often given to children on their first day of school, and were used to fill with presents and candy. Popular in the 19th and early 20th centuries.

Researching family history has been a hobby of mine for almost 30 years. I have several unidentified photos that may be family or friends.

I want to build a place where my son can meet his great-grandparents. My grandmother Marian Joyce (Benning) Kroetch always wanted to meet her great-grandchildren, but she died just a handful of years before my son's birth. So while she didn't have the opportunity to meet him, at least he will be able to know her. For more information about what we're building see About AncientFaces.

My father's side is full blood Sicilian and my mother's side is a combination of Welsh, Scottish, German and a few other European cultures. One of my more colorful (ahem black sheep) family members came over on the Mayflower. He was among the first to be hanged in the New World for a criminal offense he made while onboard the ship.
