We have an alpenfest in our town every year, our sister town is Pontrecina from Switzerland. It's a very large festival and alot of people dress in there dirndle skirts and liederhosen. My husband said he thinks that is what the men clip in their hats. It's made of stag hair or elk hair which is native to Europe. Hope this helps.Pam
I am not 100% sure what it is, but I am sure jealous you have one and I don't! *giggles*Kelly
Maybe a shaving brush... not sure but kinda looks like it could be...boars hair hugs
I agree--possibly an alpine, military or hunting hat pin. It looks quite old. Look at examples here:http://www.germanimporthaus.com/cgi-dir/index.cgi?name=Gamsbart
