Unique and beautiful Opera hand fan of natural tortoise shell dating from the Victorian Era. This is a small hand fan. When fully open it measures 8" wide, and 5 3/4" in length when closed. The widest point measures 1 1/2". The ribs are woven together with a 3/4" chocolate brown silk ribbon. The pictures don't do justice to the beauty of this beautiful fan.
It is a vintage piece and which is difficult to capture the nuances of colors in a picture. This fan has been used, however it is in very good vintage condition commensurate with its age. There is no breakage to the ribs, nicks or fleabites. This is a must have for a fan collector, or an Opera enthusiast. And also for someone who loves small works of art, or just needs a pretty unusual hand fan to keep cool with. Extraordinary piece of Victoriana.

International buyers please contact me for shipping rates, thank you.
