The Fan Museum

Hand screen with Art Nouveau metal frame backed with two types of mother of pearl. The fan was presented to Queen Alexandra (1844-1925) while she was still Princess of Wales on 20th June 1900, at the laying of the foundation stone of the Royal Victoria Infirmary, Newcastle-upon-Tyne.
The frame is embellished with two enamelled crests: the first with three Prince of Wales feathers, and the second with the three castles of Newcastle.

The satin leaf (backed with parchment) is printed with a bird's eye view of the Royal Victoria Infirmary, Newcastle-upon-Tyne.
