Art of Hand Fan:  a Unique Museum

A new museum opened in Saint Petersburg.


“Art of Hand Fan” museum opened at 73/75, Kamennostrovsky Prospect, Saint Petersburg. The museum founder Eugene Pylayev devoted 25 years of his life to collecting. This is a unique museum – there are 250 hand fans many of which are exclusive. Besides, “Art of Hand Fan” is a first themed one in Russia and third in the world – there are two more public collections in London and Paris. The oldest one dates from the end of 17th century. Collection includes many models manufactured by world known companies – such as Duvelleroy, Facone, Alexander – and hand fans owned by celebrities.
