Victorian Mourning Fan for RestorationVictorian Mourning Fan for RestorationVictorian Mourning Fan for Restoration

This is an unusual item.
It is a Victorian black cloth fan in a retractable style.
There is a black paper tube partially cloth covered.
When the tub bottom is pushed, a clothe cockade type fan pushes out.
There are a couple of string like attachments to the side of the cloth fan which I think would have been part of the opening mechanism at one time.
I would guess this fan needs someone to figure out how it opened and stayed open originally.
Still a very unusual piece.

Condition: As stated, this item needs restoration having some age wear and a mechanism that does not completely work.

Size: 6 1/4 inches closed. 13 inches opened.

Item ID: 2014-754
