A Dutch Mollen Hood for a Peregrine Falcon of Leather and Red Felt
Late 19th Century

Size: a. 10.5cm high - 4 ins high / 16.5cm high - 6½ ins high (with base)
To spare the bird unnecessary agitation it is hooded. A procedure which initially is rather stressful for the bird. Frederick II Holy Roman Emperor (1194 - 1250) in his famous book on falconry ‘The Art of Hunting with Birds’ advises practising the hooding procedure in a darkened room and gives instructions on how the hood should be held.
