Looking over our collection i looked at this fan and saw the butterfly metal, very nice. Do anyone think this a butterfly possibly? And what feathers are this from?

    Hi, just recently looking for information on my feather fan I found yours. For some of the details I thought it was Chinese and I just did some research, because of the shape I am sure it is Chinese and I also found some similar butterfly. It appears to be something called kingfisher (no idea what it is ^,^). Below you can find some links:

    For my impression you have a great piece :).
