This early 20th century funeral fan advertises the services of a lady embalmer. The Humiston funeral home was founded in 1908 by Howard B. Humiston and the “lady embalmer” was his wife Margaret. It’s in another family’s care today, but the historic funeral home is still operational. The fan was made in China from woven plant material and the name & address of the funeral home are printed on one side in black. Refer to photos for size and condition: Overall good with some minor wear to the woven material near the bottom of the back side. The wrapping around the handle is very slightly loose.
