I don’t know… :( Still I am very interested in finding some beautiful and really good reproduction.
The fans I have you can buy everywhere but I want to order something really worthy.

They do have pretty fans, but I can't read what it all says and I can't tell if they sell them or not. Can you?

The site is pretty irritating even if you read French. Someone had way too much fun with Flash.

As near as I can make out, they expect you to contact them (not that they make that easy) and probably negotiate a price for a custom order.

You might try this page of links:

Apparently there are even whole forums on fans. :)
