We are offering two wonderful black millinery feathers along with the original shopkeeper bag they were placed in when purchased. We believe one is a large ostrich plume and the other is a smaller feather composed of eleven separate plumes. These feathers were found in a deceased relative's belongings inside a paper sack in an old cedar chest. The sack has a lion passant logo and the writing: "STETSON and MALLORY HATS, MOORE & VANDERMAST, Orange, Calif." Our relative lived and grew up in the city of Orange.
The large feather plume measures approximately 23" in length. The smaller feather measures approximately 15" in length. It is difficult for us to properly access the condition of these wonderful feathers as we are not knowledgeable in this area. The merchant's paper sack is wrinkled and has some tears at the open end but the logo is strong and on both sides of the bag. Please have a look at the photographs and ask any questions that you have.
We hope these feathers will find their way to someone who will use them on a vintage hat or other item.
