01082011_18_1
Original nineteenth, or early-twentieth century hackle, probably of UK/Commonwealth origin. Weíre uncertain of this hair plumeís original application, but its large size (for a hackle, anyway) may indicate use on a grenadier bearskin. Predominant color is black, but this tint fades to a deep brown at base, and the topmost ľĒ (1 cm.) is carefully and uniformly bleached white. Affixing loop is of brass wire, and its junction with the gathered hair is wrapped with emerald green silk thread. Condition is excellent.
