My new 18th century fan!

The fan is circa 1770, French. It’s painted silk with ivory sticks, leaf, spangles, and embroidery.

This one from 1775 has sticks like mine…

These are all the medium pics but in this set on Flickr, there are super big ones so you can see detail!

The fan also came with a really nice frame, which I haven’t put the fan in yet, though I will!
