This is a beautiful art nouveau fan hand painted by French fan painter Ronot-Tutin, a gorgeous pink Chrysanthemum is painted on very fine gauze or mesh like fabric. The painting displays both the front and back of the flower, with the front image outlined in gold metallic thread. The fan leaf is mounted on mother of pearl fan sticks, this is rather special because most of Tutin's floral fans were mount on wooden sticks. This fan is signed TUTIN however it is very difficult to see as part of it is rubbed off. If you are familiar with this fan artist you will recognize his work. The signature is found on the fan leaf at the third interior stick left of the right guard where the leaf meets the fan stick. Condition is perfect, as though the fan was never used. 9 1/2" x 15". Guaranteed to be as described. Fan box included although it is not the original box.
