    I'm trying to list some flapper items tonight for a guy that Sue Bartondoll had mentioned a while back.
    The hat and the dress will go up together.

    Anyway pics are probably hard to tell but am I safe going with ostrich feathers on this hat?

    The last one I actually think it's on backward.
    Didn't notice til I took the "off head" pics. So I retook showing the other way as well.

    Thanks!

    It is Ostrich feathers, but the hat isn't "flapper", its from the early 1950s.

    Hi Karen, Gorgeous hat!

    I believe you're right that they are ostrich feathers. Growing up my Mom had a GIANT feather duster made from them and that's what they looked like ;)

    ohhhhhhh!!!!!
    Thanks Jonathan.

    It was with the flapper dress that I posted the other day.
    Just thought they went together.
    Glad I didn't finish it up yet:)
