Item details

These dyed and lacquered goose quill stickup trims are each made of a single goose quill that has been stripped on one side, dyed, and coated with a lacquer-like finish. The feather shaft on most of them has been painted with a gold paint. At the base of each trim is a reconstructed bird head that has been build up on a base core and covered with small feathers that are pasted in place.

Colors are vibrant and unfaded, although glue may show in places on lighter colors. Trims should be re-pasted before use. Most colors are available in both left and right quills. The trims are in excellent-mint unused condition. Ruler shows size.

New Old Stock millinery feather trims, 1920s-40s. Uses: millinery/hats, lapel pins, hat pins, hair accessories, fascinators.
