Lady wears feathers

I was pleased to find out where my vintage hat prints came from and also thrilled to be offered this wonderful print of a woman wearing plumes of black feathers in her hat.
They all came from a 1930's catalogue
" Album du Figaro" La Mode de printemps.
Originally it cost 250 francs and is full of wonderful images of the fashion of the era.
There are quite a few more so I may be tempted to buy again.!
The hat in the print has glorious black feathers so I have taken some pictures of a few of my feathers which I am using at the moment for various pieces.
These chequered feathers are achieved with a burning technique and are known as brulee, just like the dessert.
