How can i tell what they are made from, the white ones. Either bone or ivory or something else? I don't know anything about these, and a few more white ones we have.

    The top two on the left are Chinese. The on with the crowd scene is very nice.

    Do you have their cases? They look like they are in reasonable condition.
    The painting on the red one with the broken blades is very nice.
    Thank you for sharing them.

    The first fan "red silk" is european fan, 1870-1880. But it is broken and its value is invalid.

    The second fan 'red and green fan" is chinese, middle of 19th century. If it is complet and in good condition : 200-300 euros.

    The fan "blue" should be japonese. 20-30 euros

    The "3pieces fan" is a fixed fan, chinese, late 19th century. In good condition, 100 euros.
