Baron Achbar has asked if Duck Pins are period. I answer -
Please excuse me for replying. I am not a Laurel in garb, so I'm
treading on shaky ground here. I have seen some of the better dressed
fowl recently using points instead of pins to make their fastenings,
but I am unaware of research that conclusively indicates that pins are
to be avoided.
Of course, if you are referring to the manner in which ducks are
attached to people's clothing, instead of how the ducks hold on their
own hosen, we are broaching an entirely different matter. I myself
prefer to fasten on my ducks with points and lacets. I find that
acutally piercing the birds leads to unseemly quacking on their part.
Lacing them on gently but firmly, agrees with the ducks far better and
produces a longer lived "flutter effect" as they wave their pinioned
wings in greeting at passers-by.
