From a French collector, this fabulous rare Antique French Hand Painted Fan, with a divine design and exceptional painting. Hand painted on both sides, what makes this fan so special is that the hand carved bone sticks have a hand painted scene as well, stunning! Elements of the Neoclassical style so popular in Napoleon & Josephine's reign, this fine quality fan is early to mid 1800's, perfect for a frame display.   

Fine art hand painted on paper, the front of the fan displays intricately painted colorful court scenes. Beautifully dressed couples, young ladies and gentlemen are seated in a lush garden. The scene on the guard sticks shows two young women and a sleeping young man, all in exquisite period fashion. The other side depicts three ladies in the garden with two gentlemen. The scenes are surrounded with pink roses, and gilt French scrollwork.  

The leaf is set to elegant bone sticks, carved and with silver leaf foil. The handle still has its original silver boullion tassel. There is some wear to the paper, and I did find one repair {where the leaf is darkened} -to be expected after more than a century. Quite elaborate, this is an heirloom fan to add to your collection. Please see photos for the condition, and please only purchase this piece if you can love her grace of time. Measures: 16" x 8".
