vintage (unknown origin)
These rhea plumes have been peeled in half and the barbs have been trimmed into a blade shape. The end bards have been partially stripped to leave a short whip.
The white ones offered are made of new white rhea feathers that were naturally shed and clipped to replicate the original. Therefore, they are not vintage; they are reproductions.
Vintage early 1900s NOS feather millinery hat trims. Uses: millinery/hats, lapel and hat pins, hair accessories, fascinators.
