This fan is very dear to me. It was my great-grandmother's fan. Unfortunately, the moths also found it extra special, and feasted on it long before I inherited it. It's on the take-in-to-be-restored list, along with her lace wedding gloves (that I also have) ?
Ivory and silverleaf ribs with silver thread and sequins on silk leaf.
Time has not been gentle on this one.
It's hard to date this one, but since I have my grandmother's wedding band, and it's engraved 1911, I would assume it is at the latest early 1890s.
