Origin: France (sticks) and Spain (lace)

Date: 1885-1895

This beautiful and rare large fan is made of carved heavy ebony sticks and a single black machine-made Spanish lace leaf withe an attractive scalloped edge. The sticks are carved with stylised flowers and foliage. The lace is made of a silk mix thread similar to that used for the contemporary shawls, stoles and mantillas. The lace is worked with flowers. The black silk ribbon attached to the loop is original.

Length: 14.25" (36 cm) Width: 27.5" (70 cm)

Condition: Perfect. The tip of a backing (left guardstick) has a slight original antique manufacturing fault (the machine accidentally cut a tiny corner presumably a fault of the operator).

Price: SOLD
