Feather quill fancy trim, 3495. Pasted quill fancy
Made in Paris, France, these feather trims are from early 1900s New Old Warehouse Stock and still have the Paris label of origin attached to them. Each trim is constructed of vibrantly colored hand dyed goose biot feathers which are glued together onto a fabric backing. They are in mint condition, but delicate due to the age of the glue, and need to be repasted before using.
The group pictures shows multiples of each trim as they were originally wired together for sale in bundles of 4. You can see single trims in the photos with 4 color choices. These trims were repasted in-house for a project here, but the ones you receive will not be- experience has shown us that milliners/crafters prefer to do their own repairs/restoration.
Uses: millinery/hats, lapel pins, hat pins, hair accessories.
