Shamrock Valentine fan. Vintage embossed die-cut fan.

Shamrock Valentine fan. Vintage embossed die-cut fan.

No Place of Publication. Early 1900s?
Embossed die-cut color fan with gilding, 7 1/2 x 28 inches unfolded. The back has been taped with scotch tape to keep it in the open position. Multiple pinholes between figures, presumably to secure the fan in a scrapbook; one clover leaf detached; a few cracks and tears to paper; tassles at front stuck to exposed tape from verso. Despite its age and fragility, this uncommon item is bright and attractive and would display very well. This highly ornate Valentine shows a repeated scene of a young boy with a mandolin serenading a young girl, surrounded by clover. The text is partly hidden under overlapping panels, and the style indicates the early 1900s. Item #56359
