The New Caricature Dance Fan for 1799: a slender bone fan, the double paper leaf plain cream to the verso.

Under each score, in tiny script, instructions on how to actually perform the dance. The top border of the leaf shows couples engaged in dancing, some the most unlikely of partners in many ways. Central to the bottom border, the printer's details, including the date of Nov 10th 1798. Guard length 9.5 inches or 24cm

. Very obvious grain to the bone. Lower guard broken down by the rivet and small section missing. Very slight loss to the silver border at each side, otherwise quite clean and really quite good for the age and type of fan.
