FEATHER FANS & FLAG FANS

During the Sixteenth Century, the personal fan became an indispensable part of the costume of the high-born ladies and reflected the costliness of dress popular during this period. Fans became works of art using a wide variety of materials for construction and adornment. Peacock and ostrich feathers were popular for tuft fans while brocaded fabric and straw were used for flag fans (popular in Italy). Fans were adorned with mirrors, gold, silver, pearls and various precious and semi-precious stones.

Italian Flag Fans

The flag-shaped fan, also known as the "key" or "weathercock" fan became popular in Venice. Called the "ventarola" in Italy, these fans were constructed of plaited straw, parchment and brocaded fabric (often painted, beaded or embroidered). The darker colored, ornate fans were carried by matrons, while newly married or betrothed ladies carried white or ivory fans.

The HAND-MADE cane flag fan has black and gold trim with a black painted wooden handle.

The HAND-MADE brocade flag fans are available in cream with a gold handle and black with a black handle.
Approx. 20" including handle
