Mother of pearl fan, the sticks and guards finely sculpted, pierced, carved and applied with gold foils. Nice hunting scene with dogs
The leaf is skin, painted with an episode of Greek mythology. The judgment of Paris: the young shepherd must give a golden apple to the most beautiful goddess. He chooses Venus, the goddess of love, against Athena and Hera.
When the fan is folded up, we can see a flower on top of leaf, the mark of parisians fan makers between 1750 and 1780.
Good condition (small restoration on reverse of one stick)
