One is carved and set with tiny inlaid sequins, black lace with sequins and Silver thread highlighting a basket design that is filled with hand-painted violets among the black lace, signed Gerard. I have researched and found several other fans signed Gerard, one in the London Museum and one at the University of Indiana. On this fan it appears that the lace has been reattached to the side and also on several of the spines. The other fan is a hand painted cooper foliage on black silk with wood sticks. The top of this fan has a slight separation of the stitching from the body portion. Please see pictures for condition. We will provide additional pictures upon request.
