Origin: France/Belgium

Date: ca. 1865-1875

This breathtakingly beautiful fan is made of very heavy plain white mother-of-pearl sticks and a double ivory coloured silk satin leaf with a handmade Belgian Duchesse bobbin lace leaf. The leaf is worked with sprays of flowers and foliage. The loop has a large ivory silk and metal thread tassel attached to it.

Length: 11.25" (28.5 cm) Width: 21.5" (54.5 cm)

Condition: Virtually flawless. I only found a tiny moth hole on the upper edge of the back leaf and a tiny stain on a lace dot on the very top edge of the leaf  (see last photos).

Price: SOLD
