Lot 2024 of 184: A Very Unusual Mid-18th Century Ivory Fan, the monture relatively plain except for carving to the upper section of the guards. The leaf, mounted à l'anglaise, is formed from a stiffened net (most likely previously considered as catgut), and appliquéd with cut out paper fragments featuring birds in flight and perched on boughs, flowers, wild animals, and a sailing boat on the water, very much in the style of applique coverlets of the same period. Guard length 11.75 inches or 30cm
