I present you rare advertising fan “ Aviation & Grands Magasins” circa 1930, fan with

      3 question mark shaped palmettes, for the Galeries Lafayette department store in Paris.

      The shape refers to Breguet 19 aircraft better known by its nickname “Point d`Interrogation”. On board, Costes & Bellonte became the first to fly from Paris to

New York  3d September 1930, crossing the Atlantic from East to West in more than

 37 hours. Paper leaf printed. Wooden frame.

New acquisitions to the collection

Those two brise fans were purchased thanks a tragedy: at the beginning of April 2021 died unexpectedly famous Moscow collector Olga Zateeva.
