FRANCE, CIRCA 1830 A pair of French Chinoiserie ornithological painted wood hand fans. The cartouche form fans are decorated with opposing individualized birds, one a peacock the other a white bird of paradise with an orange tail. Both birds are perched over a vibrant assortment of exotic flowers, each framed off with a gilt acanthus leaf and tendril pattern. Fans measure 16 1/2" by 11", framed 18" by 28 1/2"
The right fan shows small sliver missing to the furthest left lobe, otherwise overall good condition.
