Treasures of the Fan Museum

A talk by Jacob Moss, MA

 

An introduction to the world’s first fan museum and its extraordinary collecitons:

Occupying a pair of early Georgian townhouses nestled in historic Greenwich, the story of how The Fan Museum came to fruition is interwoven with the fascinating biography of its founder whose personal collection forms the basis of the Museum’s holdings.  From an especially rare Elizabethan-period embroidered folding fan to contemporary examples decorated by street artists, discover some of the key objects within the Museum’s collection of 5000+ fans dating from the tenth century to the present day.
