Antique French Louis XV Period Scenic Painted Fan in Gilt Frame with Angels and Cherubs, 18th. Century
Very early paper or parchment fan of the period, Louis XV, hand painted in gouache, pen & ink portraying angels with young cupids in the heavenly white clouds against the palest of blue backgrounds. The exquisite scene is framed with meticulously hand painted borders. Expensively presented under anti-glare glass in a fine gilt frame worthy of this incredible work of art. Whoever the artist was, he/she was in a class of their own.
No markings other than the framers mark on verso.
18th. Century. A delightful piece of artwork.
Condition is good for age. Wear and loss as shown in photos. We did not take it out of frame so we do not know the full condition of the fan.
Overall with frame: 29 1/4" x 17 1/2" x 1". The fan is about 7" x 23".
