Sale Information

To include Part 2 of the Judith Elliott Collection comprising a quirky and varied selection of 20th century fans, some unique, with a range of advertising fans covering subjects as diverse as transport, and perfume. Judith’s copy of the out of print research work by the late Evelyn Malpas, “Fragrance and Fans” is for sale, an invaluable reference for those collecting perfume products and their related fans from the 19th century to the mid-20th century. 
The 18th and 19th century sections present some rare examples of biblical and mythological fans. And, as ivory becomes a victim of government legislation, the Oriental section presents many unusual alternatives, such as a telescopic Chinese lacquer Mandarin fan, a Mandarin fan mounted on carved tortoiseshell, and fans with montures of filigree and enamel. 
Fully illustrated catalogue will be available closer to sale date

Further entries are now invited. Final entries by 19 August 2019.
