Kid leaf fan with Roman ruins. 'Grand tour' fan, a souvernir of the 1770s from Italy. The kid leaf is painted with medallions showing tourists visiting three Roman ruins, sorrounded by classical motifs, in coloured gouache. The bone sticks are pierced and the guards show a fashionable lady seated by an urn.
