Sale Information

This sale includes a remarkable selection of fine fans from private collections, led by an extraordinary diamond-encrusted fan crafted by the Parisian jeweller Mellerio and signed by the fan maker Alexandre and the painter Ed. Moreau. The fan is linked to a marriage within prominent Russian families in 1851. Amongst other rare fans on offer are an example with a monture in the form of a dagger or sword hilt, a very rare 18th century fan with a thermometer and hygrometer, an early Chinese fan inset with mica, a fan with insert for a watch or spyglass, and a Thomasse animal fan. Also included in the sale are topographical and wartime fans from Spain and France, commemorative fans, scarce examples from the French Revolutionary period, fine fans with Royal connections and a varied selection of lace and feather fans. 

Entries are now invited for the next sale on 11 October.
