the decoration of a jewel with feathers on the turban is a so-called šelenk, this was a sign or award for bravery in the ottoman empire.
because of this I came across an ottoman sultan.

attached Mustafa 2 carrying a turban with šelenk , compare with post 1 and here pictured with a small beard .

best,
Jasper
