Patriotic American Feather Art Picture

Ca. 1930

This is the first time I have seen one of these. It reminds me of the earlier Chinese needlework pictures that American sailors bought as souvenirs of their voyages to the Orient in the late 19th century. Almost everything is done in different colored feathers except the paper eagle’s claws beak, eye and the black mounting paper or mat board (not examined out of the frame). Under glass
