Origin: France and/or England

Date: ca. 1870-1875

This very rare fan is made of carved and pierced bone sticks and a double cream coloured satin (front) and silk (back) leaf. The upper edge of the leaf has white marabou feathers and framed chromolithographs attached to it. The chromolithographs show different flower bouquets. Such chromolithographs were extremely popular in the early 1870s and small sheets of floral chromolithographs were often distributed in ladies' journals, e.g. The Ladies' Treasury.

Length: 14" (35.5 cm)   Width: 24.5" (62 cm)

Condition: Good, but sadly has several splits in the backing silk leaf and a few tiny age spots on the satin leaf (see photos).

Price: SOLD
