Fine old, circa early 19th century hand painted ladies' fan, (just the painted paper portion, no hardware), nicely framed in a fan-shaped late twentieth century shadow-box of Italian manufacture. The gouache painting when viewed up close reveals fascinating details, such as the figure in the prow of the small boat at left looking through a telescope, the figure in the stern wearing a Napoleon-style hat. Other figures at right also wear late 18th to early 19th century clothing, and architecture in distance at center looks to be equally early. The painting has likely received restoration over time, as the folds look reinforced and carefully inpainted in places. Some unrestored areas remain, when viewed under magnification, but they are not very noticeable at normal viewing distance. Note the fine decorative floral border at top. From a fine West Palm Beach, Florida area estate. Extreme dimensions are 7" by 14" (16 1/2" by 24"). The wood modern framing has chipped off areas at top and at right, each about an inch long.
