Ostrich feather duster, whitewood & white feathers
An ostrich feather duster with a clear varnished whitewood handle, a dark leather cuff, hanging band, and a large exceptionally soft white feather head. It is ideal for the most delicate items. Total length about 65cm. Made in South Africa for a small and long established family owned and run brushworks in North Rhein-Westfalia. Genuine ostrich dusters are considered better than cheaper synthetic alternatives as they generate less static, and are often used commercially where the creation of an electrical charge could be catastrophic. Domestically it just means dust is less likely to be immediately re-attracted to the thing just cleaned.
