Feather quill fancy trim, 3211. Lacquered quill fancy.
Each of these small festive feather trims is made of 3 black lacquered quills that are wired together at the base. Each of the 3 quills has 5 sections of dyed feather barbs glued onto its surface. These colored feather pieces are loose due to the fragility of the almost 100 year old adhesive and need to be re-pasted. The group picture of the green trims shows how the green pieces are coming off the lacquered quills. These trims can be restored prior to using, or enjoyed as parts. Ruler shows size.
New Old Stock millinery feather trims, early 1900s (1920s-40s), probably vintage Lemarie.
Uses: millinery/hats, lapel pins, hat pins, hair accessories, fascinators.
