This is a gorgeous hand painted yellow feather fan which displays a beautiful pastoral scene when opened. Although I’ve tried to find some information, it seems to be one of a kind as I can’t find anything like it.
I can’t be sure when this beautiful antique fan dates from but I would think the Edwardian period or earlier. It is made from wood and real yellow feathers. One of the feathers is loose and turns to the side when opened, but could be repaired and one of the wooden side arms has been repaired, I have tried to show this in the photos.
This exquisite fan measures approx. 37cm when fanned open and its height is approx. 23cm.
This would be a fantastic gift for a collector or anyone interested in vintage fashion.
