    View attachment 1928 View attachment 1928 View attachment 1929 View attachment 1930 View attachment 1931 I purchased and have owned this 40 Star Parade Flag Fan for many years. I believe it is period and dates to 1876. The fan is hand painted/Stenciled on paper with a forty star flag. The handle has an asian influence and is made of papier mache. The back has an asian style stamped design.Perhaps it was a chinese export for the american market. I have never been able to locate another. Any information would be greatly appreciated.
