"Raspberry Dreams" by Alouïse van de Voorde Painted by L.(éonide) Hannequand

Origin: France

Date: ca. 1868-70

This large and exquisite fan is made of irridescent mother-of pearl sticks and a double white satin (front) and silk (back) leaf. The front of the leaf is handpainted with raspberries. It is signed with "L.(éonide) Hannequand" on the right side.

Léonide Hannequand was a pupil of Rosa Bonheur and Adele Toupillier. She was chiefly known for her painted porcelain and had a small atelier. She must have achieved considerable success in her field, if van de Voorde asked her to paint a fan for him.

The fan comes in its original labelled satin covered  cardboard box. The fan was made by Alouïse van de Voorde, 56 Rue Charlot, Paris, winner of the silver medal at the Exposition Universelle in Paris in 1867.
