The Oddment Emporium

A Cornucopia of Eclectic Delights

Death Crowns
In Appalachian folklore Death Crowns are curious discs of interwoven feathers that were found in the pillows of the dying or deceased, that is, in times when feather pillows were more abundant. If discovered in the former, they were seen as a sign that the person would surely die, whilst if found in the latter, they were seen as a sign that the person had gone to Heaven.
Measuring on average two inches wide and one inch thick, scientific explanation suggests that the feathers would become inadvertently matted by the bed bound person’s head, however, those who go in for the legend still believe it is a sign from angels that their loved one is with God.
