Purple Heart - A Wall Art Fan
This is my latest (available to buy now) wall Art fan which will be followed by similar soon.
The central heart is a drawing of mine from a series of similar heart inspired works on paper. I intend to use these mages on different style fans in my Valentines collection coming soon, so keep an eye open for them :)
The base of this rosewood and silk calligraphy fan was painted wth layers of deep mat purple alternated with a darkest brown with metallic gold dotting which catches the light with subtle gleams and velvety dark. The top of the leaf is also completed with gold and brown. These colours and mark making carry onto the staves and the front guard.
I have place a heavy dark red and metallic gold tassel with this fan which will be gift wrapped and sent boxed for safety in transit. I will include a long gold organza pouch for carrying if required.
Please note that this fan will close fully but that it was primarily made for display or special occasion purpose. Intended as a calligraphy style fan to be kept open upon the lap for ceremonial occasions they are a little harder to open and close and often this style and size of fan is often advertised as a 'Mans' fan. Repeated opening and closing may also damage the design surface.
These fans are being bought either as movable wall decorations, costume props, weddings corsages or kept as an art object in a deep frame or rested simply on a small easle or hand fan stand.
This is an original artwork fan, with a collage element of my drawing central to the piece so when you consider what you may pay for an original artwork similar to this....this fan is a must have for any collector who can see it's value in the creative idea and the work that has gone into it's making. Add to this...that it can also be useful... and it's a win all round :)
Approximate size when opened:
H 27 cms / 11 inches W 50 cms /
H 18 Inches D 3.5 cms / 1 1/2 inch

Gifting a Fan?
Is your fan a gift? I can include a card with your fan. Please let me know if you have a specific personal message that you would like included with your fan.
Caring for your No.1 Hand Fan
Some care instructions....Your fan is pretty hardy but as a hand painted object, it needs to be loved and cared for. When it arrives, open slowly and carefully especially if your fan has had a long overseas journey.
Keep away from excessive water or direct excessive heat and anyone that wants to play with it roughly or with sticky fingers, I find a quick fan clip round the ear does the trick!
Your fan has been sealed and lacquered for its protection and can be cleaned gently with a soft damp cloth, do not rub vigorously as this may damage the painted surface of your fan.
Re International posting: I always send my fans out by deadline via Priority Royal Mail but delivery time may vary upon destination. Unforeseen mishaps and postage efficiency in destination country which are beyond my control may effect your delivery so please order in good time for your fan to arrive by your deadline.
Unless proved to be faulty, fans are non returnable. Please get in touch if you would like to exchange a fan.
I will always refund on a fan that is damaged upon arrival.
This is conditional on:
The fan must be posted back unused within 48 hours with all original packing etc.
For insurance purposes I will need clear images of the damage to the fan and/or packaging taken upon opening the package.
A refund will be void if any attempt is made to repair said damage or if it is apparent that the fan has been damaged post arrival or has been tampered with in any way.
I reserve the right to cancel any order.
