Antique Ladies Italian Sorrento Ware Inlaid Wooden Mechanical Hand Fan c.1890

Circa 1890 

This antique travel hand fan is a beautiful piece of Italian Sorrento Ware from the late 19th century. 
The intricate inlaid wooden design adds a touch of elegance, typical of 19th century Italian Sorrento ware. 
With a vibrant green coloured silk material fan. 

The fan is in full working order - Push the central column out and extend it fully. Spread the fan out. You are then able to push the column back down to secure it in place - Reverse this procedure to close the fan back up. 

The fan is a unique piece of history, perfect for collectors of small Treen pieces.  
Ideal bag or pocket size. 

Fan length closed 34cm 
Width when closed - 3cm 
Diameter of fan open 27cm

Condition - Good. 
Small burn mark - Likely from when a lady was fanning herself when smoking and accidentally caught the fan with her lit cigarette.
