Signed Fan Featuring Duke Kahanamoku & Douglas Fairbanks Jr. (52 Total Signatures)
Framed like a pinned butterfly, this folding paper fan is signed by 52 stellar participants of the 1924 Paris Summer Olympics. Penned with precision and finesse on each fold, this delicate item is protected on all sides by glass and wood. Signed athletes include Duke Kahanamoku and his brothers David and Sam (as well as two other Hawaiian athletes), Helen Wainwright, William Dehart Hubbard (first black athlete to win individual gold medal), Earl Johnson, Margaret Dowd, and actor Douglas Fairbanks Sr. Double-framed in wood as a showpiece and matted in a mauve fabric, it presents as a work of art on both sides, glass allowing its signatures to be witnessed and guarded at the same time. Fan is EX, and signatures are exquisite and overall NRMT.
