Louis Vuitton Marc Jacobs exhibition opens in Paris with cocktails and marabou.
They were worth to us about sixpence apiece, while marabou feathers are scarcely to be had for money in Europe.
But the marabou has forfeited all respect—converted it into nose-tint.
This being the case, there is a proverb about cleanliness that makes one wonder why the marabou stork doesn't wash himself.
A common white stork hasn't half the solid gravity of an adjutant or a marabou.
After leaving the vley where the marabou were, we rode on and on across the shadeless, waterless, sun-baked plain.
Clouds hovered over us, delicate and fleecy as the feathers of the marabou, and white and curly as the feathers of the ostrich.
It was near to where I had seen the marabou on my way up, but these beautiful creatures had now all disappeared.
Yes, there could be no doubt about it; they were marabou feathers, of perfect texture, and large size.
