Circa 1900 ladies’ souvenir hand fan with lithographed paper leaf and gilt wood sticks features famous London scenes and a medallion trio of paintings. Every inch of the leaf is decorated, with intricate rose garden and trellis designs interspersed with the medallions and bordering the top of the fan, and hand-applied gold paint enhances the colorful lithographic images throughout.

The iconic London sites represented at the top border of the fan, from left to right, are identified as: Westminster Abbey, Thames Embankment—Cleopatra’s Needle, St. Paul’s, Windsor Castle, the Row, and the Tower of London. The medallions appear to be the works of (or in the style of) 18th cenury British painters such as Joshua Reynolds, Thomas Gainsborough and William Hogarth.

The back of the fan is blank white paper, and the handle and rivets are both brass. The fan measures 8 ½” high and 15” fully opened. A museum deaccession, it has a paper inventory tag with the number written on the back of the sticks as well (photo #6).

This charming antique souvenir fan is in excellent condition, with no issues other than a 1” section of tiny surface abrasions to one pleat (photo #8).
