The Leaf of the Hand Fan is a Beautifully Water Colour Hand Painted Scene of a Lady Sitting wearing a Beautiful Blue and Purple Dress with her Hair Tied Up, and having a lovely Neckless, and she has her Faithful Dog sitting by her looking up to her. The Lady is turned to a Sheep that she is Stroking, this is all set in a Country Scene surrounded by Beautiful Trees and Flowers. With a Dramatic Sky behind her. This really is a Rare and Unique mid 18th Century French Hand Fan with its Beautiful Carving and Silver Pique Work and the Stunning Hand Painted Water Colour, the condition for it appx 271 years of age is really good, there is some wear of course, the Water Colour Painting has a small piece missing and a split to one side and has light wear all over, but still functions nicely, the mother of Pearl Rivets have chips and wear but still functions nicely.
