A very nice and generously sized fan. It seems to be well made and should withstand a lot of use. The only thing that would make it better is if the plastic parts were wood instead.

A lady ALWAYS has a classy fan..
Beautiful fan, REALLY circulates air. I keep it with me when I go to specials events and special places like church; worth the price. I read another review that said it was "hard to close", well it's a large, LACE fan so that's expected, meaning the fan is not made of simple paper where it would take hardly any effort to close. In my opinion the fan is NOT hard to close if you close it properly. Buy the fan and be FABULOUS.

Nice addition to the historical look
Paired with the Battenberg Lace Parasol, the Battenberg Lace Fan looks great when you are in Historical attire. Thank you!

black battenberg lace fan
The fan was excellent. I purchase the Red Walking Dress and Black feather Paracal and opened finger black gloves and anything matched perfectly. Everything was of the highest quailty. I would recommend to everyone. Will be using for a ball where I will b a lady from 1880's.

FANtastic ! Fan !
A sweet little "extra" to add to my costume . I was so happy to see that it is very very well constructed. I am sure I will get actual use out of this fan as well. Not just a "prop" but an actual fan ! Awesome price and fine workmanship. Who could ask for more ?!?

all right
Doesn't open or close easily and ribs are very cheap plastic. Still, it does move air and looks quite nice when opened.

Stunning Lace
Can't thank you enough for having such a beautiful fan to add a special Old West touch to my outfit. It is perfect. I was worried it would be small & wimpy......but it is full size & the lace is stunning & the quality is top notch! Your website is so easy to use & the service is great!

I purchased this to replace one my wife lost at the Michigan Renaissance Festival several years ago. It's exactly what she's been looking for, and she is quite happy! And I get to look smart for finding it! Thanks! John

This is quite pretty. My dance instructor used it to dance with on Saturday night at the Edwardian Ball in San Francisco, CA. It is great to this and the parasol. All women like it!

This fan is gorgeous, and more affordable than anything like it I could find elsewhere on the web, the perfect accessory for a theatrical costumer on a budget.

Battenberg Lace Fan, Ivory
Absolutely beautiful, graceful fan!! Can't wait to use it as part of my costume!! Thank you for providing high quality & reasonably priced "olden days" style items, for us to live our dreams.....

I ordered this particular item for my wedding in June of 2014 along with the Battenberg Lace Parasol in Ivory. The wedding is going to have a Victorian theme and I thought that these two items would be perfect for pictures and practical usage since the wedding will be held outside on Mackinac Island. I love these items so much I fully intend to order these two items in red for my bridesmaids!

matches the Parasol
It matches the parasol I got from you. A bit difficult to fold back, possibly due to the amount of material. The tassel came off the end.

Lace Fan
I had ordered another fan from another vendor and was quite unhappy with it. It was an ivory Battenberg Lace Fan, but it had orange embroidery all over it. That had not been stated in the description, nor showed in the picture. So, when I found the fan at Historical Emporium, I ordered it and held my breath. The fan arrived very quickly and it is beautiful. It is just ivory lace, exactly like description and picture. Exactly what I wanted. I have bookmarked your site.

beautifully hand crafted fan. Elegant details and delicate lace makes its a great addition to any lady's wardrobe. It fans out wide as to provide an adequate amount of airflow for cooling. I would highly recommend to others.

I bought this fan and one other for my mother-in-law to use as part of a garden club floral display and I know she will love them both! This one looks so delicate but when you open it you realize it is not only beautiful but very well made. I'm very pleased with the purchase. I know that Mom will enjoy using and displaying this fan long after she uses it in the garden club display!

Beautiful Fan
This fan is just gorgeous. I've owned a couple in this style before, but never in ivory. The color is soft and subtle enough to go with all but the brightest of whites, as well, though I do also have a white one. When the summer rolls around, I take to carrying one with me everywhere to beat the Oklahoma heat and avoid the need to be rude and ask hosts to turn down the air. The wood is very flexible and strong, and as long as you don't go bending it or stepping on it, it will hold up well for years.

Lovely but not functional
The fan itself is beautiful but the functionality of it is lacking. It is very difficult to open & close. Both hands have to be used in order to accomplish both. I would have returned it had it not been so lovely. I rarely use it which is sad for me. So, in actuality, I have wasted my money. Beki St. Dizier

Cute and elegant
Excellent quality. Purchased to be used in a wedding for the bridesmaids; was a hit. Matched the ivory parasol beautifully. Aesthetically pleasing and well made. Would purchase again.

Lovely fan ...
... and sturdy! Well made, and very pretty as well. The Battenberg lace is referential to the Victorians, but looks surprising modern and will work with costume and contemporary dress. So many complements!

Absolutely thrilled!
I purchased a Ladies' Battenburg Lace Fan and totally love it! It has come in handy when attending church in the heat we have been experiencing here in New Hampshire! I have recommended this product to a friend who attends another church and I expect she will be recommending you as well! Thank you so much for offering quality products at such a reasonable price!

I love it! It's light and closes to be really thin so I can carry it around in my purse and use it when I need it. I want to inspire others to stop using folded paper and come back to fan use!

Lovely Fan
My daughter, Elisabeth, is getting married in August and was concerned about becoming 'dewy' at the ceremony. I purchased this beautiful hand fan for her wedding. It will be her 'something blue' and will be an elegant way to keep cool should the temperature ramp up. The product is lovely and of quality construction. It folds up easily and provides a terrific cooling breeze with the flick of a dainty wrist.

Love this, It arrived in perfect condition and on time so no problem with shipping. the fan itself is gorgeous, I love it. I don't use fans and parasols as decoration or costume but as an everyday thing because I can't tolerate sun and heat so I am looking forward to putting this fan to work.
