Sale Information

The second Fans and Fancies sale of 2020 will continue to feature fans and accessories from a Major European Collection. The May auction included exquisite 18th century embroidered caps and more will be offered in October. The remaining fans from this collection, with lace leaves of every variety, are complemented by a Brussels lace fan from another vendor, signed by the Parisian fan maker Alexandre, featuring silk panels painted with characters from the Commedia Della Arte. Regular vendors continue to consign fans of all varieties, collected over the past fifty years, and two fine quality collections are expected, from deceased estates. Already catalogued are a good Chinese Mandarin fan with tortoiseshell monture, and a Chinese carved tortoiseshell brisé. The very feminine fancies will include Mother of Pearl accessories and a large cream Canton shawl embroidered very vibrantly, with fans.

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