Origin: Holland Date: ca. 1785. This fan is made of beautifully carved and pierced bone and/or ivory sticks and a single handpainted vellum leaf mounted à l'anglaise. The sticks are silvered gilded and show musical instruments and cupid's armour. The front of the leaf is handpainted with typical symbols of love, marriage and fertility. The reserves show typical Dutch landscapes. The reverse is handpainted with two turtle doves. The heavy silver carrying loop is a Victorian addition.
