Handy Feather Duster
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.
