Description
folding fan - Glass, Mother of pearl, Wood, papyrus - Early 19th century
Italy

Antique fan from the late 19th century, with mother-of-pearl sticks and fabric finely decorated by hand.
Kept in a nice display case with hand carved frame.

The picture depicts a peaceful day in company with musical accompaniment.

The fan has been restored in the past, probably as a result of damage.

The frame comes from Bergamo.

This is a very fragile item. The packaging will be very accurate, but as the fan is within a case, it could suffer some damage during transport, caused by the courier.
The item can be picked up at our warehouse in Lombardy (Milan).
