Still trying to get unpacked

But, the button making continues. In the meantime, want to drool along with me at this fan from the V&A collections? Museum number T.184-1982

Dated 1620 from Florence, it's cut straw applied to silk covered cardboard reinforced with metal ribs. Its just so different. I love the whimsy of the decoration and the shapes of the fan staves.
