This paper fan dates from the early 18th century. It is decorated with images associated with the Treaty of Union of 1707.

Among the images painted on the folds of the fan are a thistle, a rose, the English and Scottish flags and a pair of hands clasped in a handshake.

The Treaty of Union in 1707 united the parliaments of Scotland and England. The Union of the Crowns had taken place approximately one hundred years previous in 1603.
