The Edwardian women loved their big hats, but they also had an extreme fascination to feathers. Now as I was perusing Edwardian hats, I naturally stumbled across a huge variety, from feathery loviliness
To some rather odd vertical types
To a Mohawk
This one had me in stitches
To hats adorned with whole birds ... yes, whole birds
But for what it is worth, they were unique. They were testaments to individual personalities. They were works of art. They were as much of a woman's accessories as was her umbrella or walking stick, and no head left the house uncovered.
