Handy Feather Duster

£18.00

A small feather duster with a varnished wood handle and leather cuff – and a handy one for a quick whip-round. 

Once considered a status symbol in the late 19th and early 20th centuries, ostrich feather dusters are seeing a 21st century revival in their popularity.  Ostrich feathers trap dust, so dirt is removed rather than displaced; for the fine feathers contain millions of fibres that hold dust particles in an iron-like grip, and all that is then needed is a good shake outdoors after cleaning.  Excellent for dusting around extra delicate objects.

Ostrich feathers, varnished wood handle, leather cuff and hanging strap

Length 35cm
