Our first, and only production - The Nelson Fan - an
edition limited to 100 fans, supplied boxed. The fan leaf, printed
on an acid-free rag paper, depicts a portrait of Nelson, his
birthplace, the Parsonage House at Burnham Thorpe, and The
Victory, the scene of his death. These are set against a
background of ships of the period. The reverse has a border of
wild flowers of the North Norfolk coast.
All the illustrations are taken from original paintings created
for this fan by Pippa Brooker. The sticks are of pear wood,
mahogany stained, in English serpentine style, and the guard
sticks have a fish scale design with an anchor and rope, set on a
rippled foil. The fan is finished with a miniature rope cord
through a brass bead and "bollard", and the whole is housed in a
mahogany "sea chest" with brass fittings.
This edition is now closed, and no longer available, the details
left here for illustration only.
