Meehan Antique Miniatures




A Fireside Fan – We are viewing a fireside fan on a chair near the fireplace in

The Regency Dolls’ House. You will see that the fan has an ivory handle and this

particular one has hand-painted bugs and bees. This art work is done on light card

and is dated 1797. The outside border is of a gold foil and the back is a beautiful

dark aqua silk. These early fans were used by ladies having a tête-à-tête and while

sitting near the fireplace, the fans were used to protect the face against excess heat.
