A very beautiful black lace and gauze French fan, circa 1940. The ebony sticks and guards are hand carved and pierced. The fan is hand painted with birds in flight and graceful fragile spreading foliage. The black lace is in excellent condition. There is some minor wear to the painted birds, and the lace has come away from the sticks a bit. Could be re-glued. It's a nice large fan: a 25.5" span and sticks & guards measuring 12.5" in length. Overall condition is very good.
