The top of the fan ‘fingers’ curl and they have a tiny bead sitting in the curl. The links are finished on the bottom with a strip of silver curled around the decorative rings on either side. It has a high profile.
It is marked “Silver Mexico” in block letters on the curled hook and it is ca. 1940s. It measures about: 7 ½” long, ¾” wide and the profile is ½” high. It weighs 24.2g.
