The lace, net and sticks of the fan are black. The sticks are of painted black wood - imitation lacquer or japanning. The fan is single sided or a l’anglaise (of the English style), meaning that the lace is directly glued on to the ribs (the ends of the sticks). There is no backing, leaving the ribs exposed at the rear. The textile leaves are composed of three horizontal bands. The narrow top and bottom bands are floral (likely Chantilly lace), and the main central band of net is patterned with peacock eyes. The bands of, or derivative of, Chantilly lace appear to be machine woven.
This cream fan’s main medium is paper which has lace applied over cut-paper work outlined with silver paint. The lacy design so added is a mixture of butterfly and floral imagery. The ivory colour of the paper ground, sticks and lace complement the silver details creting a luxurious appearance. Each stick has been painted (in cream or faded silver) with delicate floral designs, as has the front and back of the fan’s guards. Possibly Spanish, with Asian influence (per Helen Delacretaz, Curatorial Intern)
