Step Back in Time with an Antique French Hand Fan – Elegance Personified! 🌟
📏 MEASUREMENTS: 14″ (35.6 cm) long.
Transport yourself to the Edwardian era with this exquisite antique French hand fan, complete with its original box. This fan is a true gem, featuring a black silk organza leaf adorned with delicate black lace inserts. The central area showcases a hand-painted lady in soft pastel colors. But that’s not all – the lace inserts are beautifully embroidered with silver and gold-toned sequins. The golden sequins are shaped like tiny stars that transform the black canvas into a magical starry night sky.
The fan’s guards and sticks are crafted with precision, made from black material, wood, or ebonite, and decorated with intricate carved motifs.
The fan’s box, in a sophisticated pale grey color, boasts a raised floral motif. While it lacks an identification label from the manufacturer or retailer, it radiates a sense of history.
The fan is in good condition, with minor issues. The hand-painted lady shows some small lacks of paint. One stick is partially broken, and the leaf is slightly detached from one of the guards. These minor imperfections are easily restorable by a skilled hand. The box structure remains sturdy, with only slight wear to the corners.
Embrace the imperfections and patina of this ageless beauty, as showcased in the photos. We invite you to closely examine these images before making your purchase.
