Sale Information

To include The Judith Kennedy Collection of Fine Antique Fans, Part III of A Private Collection of Fans and selected items from other private vendors.
Judith Kennedy (1902-1986) joined the Fan Circle International in 1977, during the society’s early days; she was an enthusiastic committee member and exhibited her fans on numerous occasions. Judith came to fan collecting late in life. Her interest was sparked when she found her late mother’s fans, but she went on to make many friends amongst the FCI and was known for her energy and love of pretty things, including needlework and porcelain. Judith was drawn to lace and oriental fans in particular, and especially liked to collect fans with provenance. Several of her fans now up for sale are worthy of further research, many having unusual features and others simply being fine examples of their kind. Fans from the 19th and early 20th centuries feature strongly amongst the collection, with many vibrant lithographed leaves, Duvelleroy spangled fans and rare fans from China. 

A fully illustrated catalogue will be available leading up to the sale
