Rue de la Paix Reproductions is pleased to offer reproduction brise fans in a variety of styles and colors; these fans are handmade from Finnish birch wood and starched silk taffeta.  Punchwork, antique spangles, and silk tassles may be added.  In stock fans are occasionally available through our Etsy page; custom orders are also accepted.  Our fans are patterned after originals circa 1855-1870 in our own and other collections.
