Dear Shakemeredith, Wow, that makes sense, and especially with your having seen these before. In all these years I have not, so they must be rare. They are a pair with one broken with all pieces pr...
Zowie, You've been a big help. I think we're getting close. Mt. Vernon was at a loss. GPJ
PastrimePro, No, it's a stand alone piece with its own handle and no means of attachment to a fan. I still like the hair slick. GPJ
Zowie, Roger that. I'm not giving up on the ribbon. GPJ
Pastime Pro, That is a new one! Will try to follow it up. Best, GPJ

Dear blunderbuss2, Well, it certainly has kept me awake! There are 2, the other broken + 2 sections of a larger/longer item almost like a slim baton, all 3 with the GW carving. GPJ
fhrjr2 I included the history because it was requested! I have plenty of authentication, but that is not the issue. I am simply trying to find out what it is! Sorry if that is "odd" to you! GPJ
