I only just learned that fans shaped like this are called cockade fans, and I must say I find it a great pleasure to unfurl them and then lock the handles in place! Victorian era, I love the cutout edges on this one, combined with the peach colored ribbon that runs all the way around. The dark brown with gold decoration leather-like covering on the wooden handles shows some wear, but it's in good structural shape with years of fanning left in it yet--and it's fun to use. I might hang it on the wall to grab when needed!
