Site Date Range: c. 1652-1900

Metal: White metal alloy

Tine Length: 0.4”

Leather Thickness: 0.02”

Description:
Feather-like motif. The tines are very delicate and they are pinched in so far as to indicate that this item was not used on leather, which would be too thick and tough for the attachments. The object may have been attached as a decoration on a textile instead.
