This is a rare and beautiful Regency brise fan painted with a charming design including English flowers and exotics birds. It dates to about 1810
These little fans were very popular at the beginning of the 19th century, and were used for decorative effect more than practical.
The hand-painting is beautifully executed and the whole fan is excellent condition. The ribbon strong and there are no breaks in the openwork carving.
This little gen is just over 6" in length and it has the original box which is stable and complete, but rather shabby
There is some flash reflect in some pictures.
