I have had several fans over the years, but none has been so wonderfully painted as this one. Notice that the center blades are the body and wings of a butterfly! Exquisite! The tips of each blade is painted in gold with a red line beneath. Wonderful rosettes, and sprinkles of forgetmenots decorate the rest of the blades. This painting is the difference between a painter and an artist. The ribbon is original, but no longer whole. Personally, I like the color so much I have never felt a need to switch things out. With the handle, the fan measures 2 1/2 inches tall. It is not quite 3 1/2 inches when fully opened. Please feel free to ask questions or request more photos. Do take a look at my other early doll items and thank you for shopping Red Dog Dolls.
