a feather bed can be either an entire mattress made out of feathers, or just a pad made out of feathers that resembles a contour sheet with the elastic on the corners..
the feather "bed" you sleep ON..the duvet you sleep under as a blanket..
I remember back in the day when every bed in my grandmother's home was a feather bed on a spring box "mattress" on those old black brass frames. Man were they uncomfortable-you'd sink all the way to the springs which were usually hard and knobby.
