Antique Chinese Carved Sandalwood Fan with Painted Fabric Figures
This antique, carved sandalwood Chinese fan is unusual because the court figures that decorate the fan are painted on actual cut out textile pieces.An interesting innovation, but unfortunately many of the figures have fallen off, so what we see are many undecorated portions where figures once were involved in the activities of court life. It needs a lot of repainting, but would be a spectacular fan if redone. The sandal wood is in very good shape, but there is one area of loss that I have photographed....again a repair would make a big difference. Still has it's original box, but that again has had a tough life.I wish I had the time and the talent to fix this fan, it is a really nice one.
HEIGHT FAN 11 1/8 inches (28.3 cm)
WIDTH OPEN 20 1/2 inches (52.3 cm)
