Fan, Folding, Black satin with pink rose spray

About this object

A black Victorian cloth-backed satin fan with lacquered montures and hand painted pink rose spray with leaves. It has two ties, one cord and one ribbon, tied to the handle on the rivet. It is very chic and simple in its design.

There is no acquisition documentation for this fan so it cannot be accurately dated, or provenance determined, but its style indicates it likely dates from the late 19th Century or early 20th Century.

The name 'Mrs. Price' is printed on a sticker attached the fan.
