About this Item

N.d., mid-18th Century almost certainly, a hand-colored design on vellum which was meant to have been folded and attached to the spokes of a fan but wasn't. The paper is a half-circle, with the length 52.5 cm, the height, 29 cm. The image is richly colored, with the dominance of deep blues and greens, and the scene evokes the pastoral fantasy so infectious to the aristocracy during the reign of Louis XV. The image itself would have filled out the fan. The vellum has many a flattened crease, and there is light soiling, and perhaps a touch of fading of the gouache paint on the image. Still, something that would be very attractive mounted and matted. Bookseller Inventory # 004335

Shipping Terms:

The shipping cost provided automatically by ABE assumes that the item is the size of an average hardcover book. Since our stock is comprised largely of material which is bigger and heavier, we will often need to request additional shipping charges as a result. We pride ourselves on always packing safely, with the actual materials and method of packing depending on the item(s), where it is going, and with whom we are shipping. We most frequently use the post office, but on some high value items, or upon request, we may use alternatively UPS or FedEx. With the postal service, to domestic destinations with lower value items and the automatically furnished ABE shipping quote, we will usually use Media Mail; on higher value items we are partial to Priority or Express Mail. We will always seek to comply with a customer's wishes if they are communicated to us. When we seek additional shipping charges, we pass along those charges at our cost -- we do not add for handling or materials generally.
