Antique A. Rodien France 7.25 Silk Hand Painted Fan Orig Box
Wonderful antique circa 1870-90 hand painted silk and gilt wood folding hand fan. Still has the original box with the makers label inside - A. 48, (Paris) and original owners name on bottom of box "Mary".

Folded the fan is 7.25" long and 1.5" wide - opened it's 13.5" wide and 7.25" high. The splines of the fane are a bright heavily gold gilt wood with intricate open fretwork on the end pieces. The Cream tone silk is decorated with handpainted pink and white roses in full bloom to just buds and a single multi-color feathered bird. Now the bad news - one of the end splines is broken, could be restored with a brace but I defer to the new owner on that choice.

Also the 4th spin from the end from that damaged end spline has broken off and is not entirely there, enough is in the sleeve to not hinder fan function. The silk slides off the splines, thee are little pockets for the ends to slide into since the silk is double layered.

I don't know if this was so one could change the fan or to facilitate cleaning the silk if needed. Rodien France 7.25 Silk Hand Painted Fan Orig Box" is in sale since Sunday, May 19, 2019.
