GORGEOUS VINTAGE HAND ROYAL BLUE MARABOU FAN FOLD UP PIERCED STAVES - FOLDING HAND FAN
I have had this fan for decades packed away and came across it the other day. It is very full & plush with soft marabou that moves with the slightest breeze. The color is a dark royal blue and it was hard to get the exact shade in the photos but it is darker than shown. (The color is most like the 2nd photo)
There are 19 pierced ivory staves with both ends having an Art Deco design on them. There is a thin metal 1/2 loop at the bottom which hold the staves together as well as being a small handle to carry the fan. Attached to the loop is double knotted fringe for decoration.
From side to side with the fan open, it measures to the widest point appx. 19" and 11" vertically to the highest & lowest points. The hanging fringe measures from top to bottom 6-1/2". One feather is missing on the end stave on the back side but I did not notice it until just now and neither will anyone else. (Shown in next to the last photo)
It is in excellent condition considering the age of the fan and soooo beautiful in this rich dark blue marabou. It would add a touch of glamour to a evening gown or just as a vintage decoration in a bedroom!
We examine each item carefully and note any imperfections, but unless an item is said to be new, please don't expect it to be perfect & even some new items have small imperfections. I will always state in the description if there are any imperfections & I never do repairs but leave them to others who are better able to do them than me as that is not my expertise.
Please remember that unless specified all items have been used and will show varying signs of use or wear. We always list the obvious imperfections to the best of our abilities. However, some slight imperfections that will not show or affect wearing or using the item may slip by or not be considered worth mentioning.
Vintage nightgowns & peignoirs may be delicate so I do not wash them in the machine. I wash them in lukewarm water with Woolite or some other mild soap, then rinse & hang dripping wet in the shower.
Since these are vintage items, a bit of extra care needs to be taken with them so they remain beautiful & I definitely would never put a vintage nightgown or a peignoir in the dryer as it would ruin it.
The items are sold as we find them. We do not dry clean, launder, alter or repair vintage clothing and they should be cleaned or washed upon arrival. Please make your selection carefully & check the measurements as there is no return on clothing or other items.
