My wife's great Grandmother came from a famous family Salem, Ma, her sister married a Captain of a ship 1870s -1895 .She was with him around the world left a ton to her sister who lived here. Left to us now look at this set anyone know where these came from, i don't know anything about hand fans at all at all. BTY these women's family goes straight back to the start of the Revolution War direct descendant of Perley Putnam, killed by the British leaving Lexington.

    There will surely be someone out there who can give you some information about your 'instant collection'.
    I'd say you've been really lucky to have been gifted them.

    I have just uploaded an almost identical fan to your #DSCF8538 except mine has a natural wood handle. I will follow your post as well as notify you if I get any info.
