A mystery item!!

I am working my way through a small attic clearance where most of the items date from the late 1800s to the early 1900s.

I have unpacked this little glass case and initially thought it contained a mourning piece of feathers woven with hair plaits. But on closer inspection it is not hair but linen and hemp plaited string with small coloured feathers.

I have no idea at all what it could be!

Any suggestions?

No sign of the black cat yet today although when we got back from La Poste yesterday it was curled up asleep in a hedge with Charles sitting just a few feet away. Neither seemed worried by the other at all. It ran away as soon as it saw me though. I`ll keep you posted on that one!

A demain mes belles!!

    I have no idea what this is...I cannot wait to see what people offer as a suggestion. IT certainly is interesting.

  3. I love how your music "always" matches your posts, very clever and soooooo entertaining. I grew up listening to Henry Mancini!!!

    I have NO IDEA what this will be interesting to see what it is.

  4. Eye patch for a pirate with a feather fetish maybe!!
