Visual display of the German fan

German fan

  • Celluloid, petite-sized, brisé fan with French ivory sticks and guards. French ivory is celluloid mixed with ground powder. In black silhouette is a formally dressed lady and gentleman of the 1800s with touches of red and pink flowers. The fan appears to be hand painted. The sticks are connected just above the silhouette with interlaced cream ribbon. The ring is stamped, "Germany."
  • From the private collection of Dovie Horvitz (2012.55.13).
