EXCEPTIONAL Anniversary Tin Fan
American, ca. 1860. During the second half of the 19th century, the tenth, or "tin" anniversary was one of great celebration. Whimsical gifts fashioned from tin were often presented to the married couple, made by professional tin smiths. This lady’s fan is beautifully smithed with folds that alternate in and out. In exceptional condition with perfect dry surface.....custom-fitted stand. Including stand about 21 inches tall.
