Ca. 1890 antique Tiffany hand-painted silk and ivory fan, in original box
On offer is a large Tiffany & Co. Fan, composed of ivory, lace, and silk, with silver loop holding a silk ribbon and tassel. The fan is contained in its original silk-covered 14.5-inch-long box, within which is printed Tiffany & Co. Grand Prix Expositions Universelles 1878 & 1889. The fan measures about 13.5 inches tall; when unfolded it measures about 24 inches wide. The fan features a hand-painted scene depicting a young woman surrounded by greenery and flowers set against a background of classical ruins. There is a spot of loss to one of the ivory ribs, and a break to a second rib. There are small holes here and there in the silk that comprises the fan. The silk ribbon and tassle show some soiling. I have polished only a portion of the silver ring.
Overall a lovely fan that would display very nicely. 1890 antique Tiffany hand-painted silk and ivory fan, in original box" is in sale since Sunday, November 24, 2019. This item is in the category "Clothing, Shoes & Accessories\Specialty\Vintage\Vintage Accessories\Hand Fans".
