MINSK, 18 October (BelTA) – Mir Castle will receive three hand-made 19th century French fans, BelTA learned from the Belarusian Embassy in Paris.

“On 19 October, Anastasiya Danilova, an active representative of the Belarusian diaspora in France, will give three hand-made 19th century French fans as a gift to Mir Castle,”the embassy noted. “Such fans have never been in use in Belarus. However, they belong to the times when similar fans made in Western Europe were used by Belarusian aristocrats,” the embassy added.

The fans were made in 1880s-1890s. They are about 30cm long and depict flowers and scenes of rural life.

This is not the first project to add new items to collections of Belarusian museums implemented by the Belarusian Embassy in France with Anastasiya Danilova's help. Earlier, Mir Castle added two 17th century tapestries to its holdings. For services to Belarus-France cultural relations, Anastasiya Danilova has been honored with a letter of commendation from the Belarusian culture minister. She will receive the award at the fans ceremony.
