Antique 19th Century Victorian Hand Fan - Signed
The black-lip variety of these fan sticks comes from Tahiti and the Cook Islands. Considering the age and the delicacy of silk, this fan is in good condition. There are some tears where the delicate fabric joins the sticks and along the length of the guards, which is to be expected. The paint colors are still bright and vibrant. It is difficult to show the beauty of this fan in the photographs because the black silk is very reflective.
It comes with a beautifully carved gilt frame with pink velvet lining. This fan was described and dated by Betsy Smith, a well-known restorer and appraiser of beautiful fans.
