Origin: France

Date: ca. 1910-1920

This very sparkly small fan was probably made by one of the Parisian high quality fan makers such as Faucon or Duvelleroy. Sadly, it is impossible to show how sparkly and light reflecting it is in photos. It would have been perfect for the dimly lit ballrooms. The fan is made of carved, pierced and silver painted bone sticks and a single white silk gauze leaf. The sticks have steel piqué applied to them. The front of the fan leaf is profusely covered with steel sequins and spangles.

Length: 9" (23.5 cm) Width: 15.5" (40 cm)

This fan comes in a cardboard box that may not be its original box. The label for the retailer (department store) Frederick Gorringe, Ltd. Buckingham Palace Road, S.W. certainly looks roughly contemporary (early 1920s), but the box itself is too long for the fan. Regardless, the fan came to me in this box and I will not separate the two in case they do belong together.

Condition: Perfect.

Price: SOLD
