#4933 - c. 1870 DUVELLEROY, London Special Museum Quality Black Chantilly Lace and Carved, Pierced and Gilded Mother-of-Pearl Sticks in Original Box! I can not find the signature on this fan, but there is no question that this is one of the finest museum quality Duvelleroy quality fans! I was told that not all Duvelleroys were signed, so you really have to go with the quality of the carving on the sticks. PLEASE look at the close-up photos to see the intricate details!! Not in perfect condition. There is a professional repair to the back of one of the sticks and there are small pieces broken from other sticks and guard. However, the superb quality rarely found outside of museums will overcome the issues. This is one you will want to frame and enjoy! Measures: 10" long x 2.75" wide.
SOLD - but on display in Museum Category for Research/Display
