The Fan Museum’s patron, The Duchess of Cornwall, recently gave our Royal Greenwich fan the royal seal of approval.

The Duchess was pictured in various tabloids and on numerous websites cooling herself with the little fan on a particuarly hot day at the Sandringham Flower Show.

This charming little fontange shaped fan, compact enough to fit into the daintiest of handbags, is available to purchase The Fan Museum shop.
