A fan to frame and carry on the most special occasions -- a wedding, maybe -- this showpiece of black gauze is sheer as spiderweb and has gilded patterns on its netting and lace edging, as well as on the sticks and edges. Sticks seem to be Bakelite mimicking tortoiseshell. Even the handle, of silver metal, is finely worked.

Acquired in England and presumably European, the fan shows no signs of damage or repair, despite being 80 or 90 years old (based on its design, typical of the 1920s). Height, excluding handle, is about 9 3/4" and width when opened is about 17 1/2".

There's no charge for insured U.S. shipping, with an equivalent discount on international delivery, and gift-wrap is always free when desired. Please e-mail to confirm availability, order or request more photos. Thanks for looking!
