The fan is marked on back A. L Serra, Madrid.This fan is in good condition with bright colors and no broken blades. Paper exhibits a minor tear along the upper edge and along one of the blades but displays very well and has no structural issues. The scene on the back has black and white designs with "Gloria A Colon - Recuerdo...Del 4o Centenario...Ano 1892".On the front the piece has three full color designs of Columbus planning, Columbus interacting with Queen Isabella, and Columbus preparing to depart, possibly made for the Columbian Exposition in 1892, a wonderful depiction of an historical event on a ladies fan.
