VERY well done - looks like a post card! Fine work!

@badala: Many thanks badala - always appreciate your encouragement!

Sidonie from Sydney, Australia

Beautiful! Could have been the proud possession of a French belle in 19th cent New Orleans, if the fleur-de-lys motifs signify its provenance. Fascinating!

@Sidonie: I thank you Sidonie!

Daroru from Osaka, Japan

Wonderful way you caught this. Nice perspective without losing any detail.

Anne from White Rock, Canada

Very beautiful fan Jerry! I think Sidonie is right - it definitely looks like it had a French connection. Were your family ever in France - because you write French quite well!. Maybe even Quebec (now a Nation within Canada). You've taken a darned good photo of it anyway :)

@Anne: hey Anne - thanks! I don't think the family was in France, possibly my brother while in the service many years ago...I just know I am under strict orders not to move or disturb....:-)
