What kind of kippah is this?

This photo of my great great grandfather was taken around 1900. He's a Lubavitch Jew from Belarus. His name is Zalman Malkin. He is from Liozna. The story of his life is here.

I was wondering if his kippah indicated a particular region, tradition, or style, or if that was just the general style of kippahs during that time period:
