Questions like that were asked about the old medieval/village hats when the PCC was around. There was no response and it was assumed the moulds were all lost/broken. In the last couple of years all these hats have appeared including the helmet that the old Nuremburg guards wore. They've appeared in advent calendars, Spirit franchise sets, Novelmore.
If they can bring out old stuff like that and recently they've re-issued the western gavel and bell from the school set, then it's certainly possibly for that pleated bonnet to be remade.
It's a nice piece, it is finely made and a good size. It would be great to see it on a newer figure with more realistic clothing.

If you hear the sound of the bell which will tell you that Grigori has been killed, if it was your relations who have wrought my death, then no one in the family will remain alive. They will be killed by the Russian people. :prays:

At the factory tour in 2014 they said that the oldest molds don't work with the newer molding machines. So there may be a cut off in how far back in time the rereleases can come from. There may be engineering workarounds possible though, so who knows. They are certainly motivated these days to reuse existing molds whenever possible. There have been a few really creative uses lately.

Yes, I also would imagine the price of creating molds have come down considerably also since then .  Just look at how eager Geobra is to make new unique sets only to run them in production for a year or so

Might have to go the 3D printer route

We actually need 4D printers, so we can print stuff from the past

That would be nice. It'd also be nice if the Set 3977 Easter Egg knight would make a return. ;)
