Wish I could have done this without anything around it, but it won't stay open. Might try later with fishing line. There's plenty of that around here.

What a beautiful fan. That looks old and probably quite valuable. If I may make a suggestion, take that fan to a professional framing shop and have it mounted in a shadowbox frame about two inches deep. It will cost about $200 to have it done but will preserve the fan and allow you to display it in a beautiful setting. If the shadowbox is sealed, it will keep it clean.

My mother had an antique white (ivory, I think) fan that she had mounted in a shadowbox with a royal blue crushed velvet lining. That fan now hangs on our living room wall.

Thanks. I'm going to try some more shots with it tomorrow with the sunlight and experiment with a 10x closeup lens I just got.

Cal, actually this is a $2 fan bought in Chinatown in Boston last year. Although, I do like your idea of displaying it in a shadow box. Will see what I can do on my own as it just sits in my dresser drawer right now. Thanks for the idea.

Nhmom,

Love the idea of backlighting the fan. A paperclip or two discreetly placed does wonders sometimes.

$2, wow, your Chinatown is cheaper than ours and your stuff has to travel a few thousand miles further. Ahh the price of paradise.

Aloha
