Georgian fan



The wooden brise fan is on the obverse trimmed with painted lines and floral motives and a glued graphic with a classical motive. The fan was inspired by the bone brise fan with classical scene - Anthony and Cleopatra, 1790 - 1795. The graphic in medallion was taken from the unmounted fan-leaf, c. 1780 - 1820, the British Museum.
