Antique Brass Badminton Shuttlecock Pendant Necklace. $12.00, via Etsy.

Badminton can be traced to the mid-1800 in India,& was created by British military officers Photos show adding a net to the traditional English game of battledore and shuttlecock. The sport is related to ball badminton, from Tamil Nadu, and is similar to Hanetsuki from Japan. Popular in the town Poona (now Pune), the game was also known as Poona. Balls of wool called ball badminton were preferred in windy or wet conditions, but ultimately the shuttlecock stuck.
