I’m not sure about the date; according to her Wikipedia article, she married in 1881. However the caption for this image states, "Éventail offert à Élisabeth de Caraman-Chimay, lors de son mariage avec le vicomte Henry Greffulhe le 25 septembre 1878, par le comte et la comtesse de MontesquiouFezensac. Eventail en plumes d'autruche chinées, écaille brune, ornement argent ou vermeil dédoré, diamants, rubis et émeraudes."
