Silk and lace fan

Article code: w02

Beautiful antique Victorian handpainted silk and lace fan.
A very lovely fan, chiffon silk handpainted with birds and branches, and further decorated with lace applications. The legs and guards sticks are made of finely carved bone. 
One of the guard aticks ahs an old period repair, a small broken piece has been reattached with small nails. The repair is very secure and won't come apart, but there is some movement at the repaired bit. The chiffon silk has no rips, breaks or tears except for one side of the backing (non-decorated side) where there is some wear, probably from not having been folded properly, see pictures.
A large fan, measuring 67 cms wide and 36,5 cms tall.
