Following the passing of a loved one it was common for Victorian Lady to dress in black for a period of time to 'mourn' and demonstrate grief, respect etc for the deceased. Following the death of her beloved Albert it is said that Queen Victorian wore only black until her death in 1901. The wearing of black garments included vanity items such as "Fans", Parasols, Bonnets, gloves etc. This Mourning Fan has painted black struts and black cloth....probable dating is 1860 -1890......condition is good for age......a few old moth holes in the cloth but the fan is intact. When spread the Fan is 20" across with a height of 12".
