Here is a very unusual Victorian Fan dating, I believe, from the 1890's. This fan has wood sticks and painted black guards but the material of the fan is a glittering gold foil with a paper backing. What a statement for a New Year's Eve party! The fan measures 14 inches long and 26 1/2 inches when opened. There is no wear on the fan. It is in excellent shape with no tears or holes. There are 2 blue tassels that I don't believe are original. This would make a great addition to anyone's collection.
