Victorian Things I Love...Ostrich Fans




I have in my collection this pretty pink Ostrich feather fan, and a black and teal blue one. A white or ivory is next on my wish list. :)
The Victorian millinery trade and the appetite for fans such as this promoted the start of the National Audubon Society in the 1920's since many species of birds were close to extinction.
