Regular price £179.00

Tax included. Shipping calculated at checkout.
An interesting antique, Victorian hand fan.

It is an accordion type fan but it has two extra guard sticks that fold down and clip together to create a handle.

This gives it the appearance of a fixed fan and it can be held with the stick.

The fan is made from silk and paper, hand painted with a floral design and a small picture of Queen Victoria on one side and a picture on the other side that appears to be the Princess Royal or it could be a young Queen Victoria.

The sticks and guards are made from painted wood.

One of the folding guard sticks is marked PatentPrit.

A very interesting antique fan with an unusual design.

Good used condition overall with some wear, small hole in the fabric, a couple of small end tears and wear to the wooden sticks and guards.

Approx 7" length closed, 2" width closed, 13" width open, 12.5" length open.
