Antique Qing Dynasty Chinese Pien Mien Fixed White Turkey Marabou Feather Fan with Polychrome Enamel Ornamentation Eventail.Dating to the Qing dynasty, early to mid 1800, this rigid hand fan is known as a pien mien. These were quite popular in France and American pre-civil war and brought a touch of the exotic orient to the Georgian and Victorian era ladies. This is a pretty example of an antique Qing dynasty era Chinese pien mien fan made up of white turkey marabou feathers adorned with a handmade polychrome enameled silver repousse ornamentation in the shape of a butterfly. The handle is made up of turned bone. The feather part of the fan measures 12" long x just over 10.5" wide, and the handle measures about 4" long. In excellent condition. This example was made to be exported to the French market, which is where I purchased it.The Chinese animal symbol Butterfly represents love, specifically young love. Happily flitting from flower to flower – it signifies a happy social life for the young and young- at-heart. Chinese legend has it that the Butterfly symbolizes an undying bond between lovers
