This is a most fascinating fan holder for wearing from the waist. It is decorated with embroidery, spangles, beads and braid. The top section has a cord for attachment to a belt and an intricately-shaped section highly decorated with embroidery with the two ends with beaded tassels. The actual holder is of black, olive green and red silk with embroidery with a lavender accent and a braid edging of lavender cord. It also has scattered spangles. The condition overall is very good for age with a few small loose threads and slight wear but this does not detract in any way from the overall decorative appeal. Length of actual fan holder 10.25 ins (26cm). Weight 36 grams. This item appears in my book, “Chatelaines, Utility to Glorious Extravagance” on page 276.
