Brisé Fans of the Regency Period

Brisé fans have no folded leaf of silk or paper, but consist entirely of pierced sticks of ivory, horn, bone, tortoiseshell, mother-of-pearl, and other materials, held together by a threaded ribbon.

Candice will use fans from her collection to discuss this particular type of fan that was popular during the Regency period. She will also give historical context to the style and size of the fans, as well as the materials  and techniques used to make them.

This presentation can be presented either virtually or in person. For in-person events, Candice will have many examples of brisé fans from her own collection for attendees to view.
