Bottle 610 - Whimsey Fan
Date Added: 03 September 2008

This is an amazingly well made fan whimsey built in a very small bottle. The fan is intricately carved and spread open to form a just under near perfect 360 degree circle. The stand of the fan is pegged to a wooden base that covers the bottom of the bottle. The base is covered with a white paper that has handwritten letter on it. Unfortunately, over time the writing has somewhat faded and other than certain letters is eligible. The bottle is sealed with a long wooden stopper with a crosspiece going through it making it impossible to remove the stopper. Even this crosspiece has a second cross peg going through it making it a double locking system which is very rare. The outside of the stopper has a carved rounded wooden cap stained red.
