Burmese Fan

Description:
During her sabbatical in 1936 Professor Beulah Blackmore traveled to Burma (now, Myanmar) where she collected examples of traditional dress. It is possible that this fan came from her travels, or those of several other early donors to the collection. The warmth and humidity of this tropical climate make fans an important (and necessary) accessory.
