After Saint Petersburg Antique Fair I have very good impressions: although quantity of participants & public was many times less than usual, I discovered great interest to hand fans. It was the first time to show my collection to public & it was amazing even for me because I saw my fans all together opened for the first time, I store them closed in boxes. During the exhibition I met a lot of interesting people & I am sure it was good idea to participate in this Fair. Next year I think to go to the Moscow Fair in Gostinniy Dvor.
Amazing, printed fan with historical event known as “treaties of Tilsit”.
On the paper printed leaf is caricature on meeting on a raft in the middle of the Neman River in July 1807
