This lovely hand-held fan is made of wood and paper and is stamped Made in Occupied Japan. It’s in very good condition – has some small slits that oddly enough, are really only visible if you hold the fan to light. Nice item, difficult to find.
This is a beautiful hand-held fan! It’s made of wood with cloth and one end has a lovely carved and color tinted design. Fan is in excellent condition – the only “flaw” I could find is when the fan is folded, one of the material folds sticks out in back instead of folding flat. I didn’t attempt to correct because I believe it has been folded this way so long that the original crease is no longer there. This is not detrimental in any way...

This is an exceptional unmarked metal mesh handbag! It measures 5 ¼” long (frame to bottom), 2 ¾” wide (mesh), and 3 ¼” at frame. Handbag is in wonderful condition -- as with many handbags of this type, some of the mesh has come loose at the hinges – that’s it!

This listing has a lovely vintage Whiting Davis mesh handbag! It has soft subtle colors in the design (it reminds me of peacock feathers) and is in very good condition with only minor “use” evidence. There are two small places where fringe has separated from the bottom of the handbag and probably is a simple repair but I would enjoy as is. The interior lining has a few very small holes – it feels like silk – the few holes are very tiny and not detrimental...
This is one of the prettiest beaded handbags we have listed! It measures 6 ¾” x 9 ¾”, 1 ½” wide (at bottom) and has a small fold over top with spring closure. Handbag is clean inside and out and all beadwork is present and secure. Inside has a “Made in Hong Kong” label, there is no other identification...
Another neat Hommer hanky box! It’s made of hard, clear plastic and is in wonderful condition with normal light storage rubs – has no cracks or chips. Very nice!
Black hankies are difficult to find and this one is very eye-catching! It’s black with a center design of orange poppies, measures 15” x 15” and is in wonderful condition (has a few loose hem threads, nothing detrimental). Based on the scallop edge, hanky appears to be a Franshaw production. Very nice addition to a collection!
This is another really neat vintage hanky listing! There are 3 white hankies and each has an attached flower and embroidered nylon corners. Set still has the original small bottle of “Breath of Spring” Parfum – it’s approximately ¼” full (rest has evaporated). Box has very pretty poppies on front. Nice!
This is a beautiful hanky – white with absolutely gorgeous embroidered flowers! Measures 10 ¾” x 10 ¾” and is in excellent condition.
