Why this is a
Masterpiece

This is a beautifully embroidered fan.

History of the Object
The article is part of the legacy of Rupert Pivec, Commissary Officer and Commissary General in the Austro-Hungarian Navy. He was born in 1863 in Ljubljana (modern-day Slovenia). After graduating from secondary school, he initially volunteered to join the Army and eventually the Navy. In 1895 he sailed, as midshipman, around the world on board the Austro-Hungarian school ship Saida. During this voyage, the ship visited South America at first, then sailed towards Eastern Asia. In August and September 1896 they visited Kobe, Yokohama and Nagasaki in Japan. From there they sailed to China and on past Singapore towards their homeland. From this travel Rupert Pivec brought a fan, which was after his death in 1947 inherited by his daughter.
