One side shows a group of young women listening to two young men playing music, the other side shows a scene of the royal French family in the palace, with gold gilt all the over. The spectacular mother of pearl guard was carved and pierced and also with gold gilt all the over. It is one of kind, hard to find. A master piece like this rarely appears on the market.Maximum dimensions are taken including handles, finials, etc. 20.5 inches/52cm (width) x 11 inches/28 cm (height) when opened.
Very good and solid condition, with the logical signs of use, some small torn on the paper due to old age. This fan was kept very well. Its truly amazing that it survived two WW wars with no damages. There are no broken sticks or guards. This is a delicate antique item.
