Striking Red Feather Fan
A fluffed vintage fan with a striking red/fuschia hue, this hand fan is an original piece that has inspired historical fan reproductions. The base is made of celluloide, which is an early form of plastic invented in the late 1800s. It originally belonged to a woman in the 1940s and was passed down to the grandaughter, who recalls hearing many stories about the fan's life. Worn in black at this year's Met Gala, this fiery piece can make a lovely addition to your ensemble at the ballet or opera, but can also double as a fun addition for bedroom play.
