This is another tremendous quality antique Chinese hand made fine FAN .. it has 2 main sticks and 18 inner parts... all of which are finely engraved and carved.. the two main sticks are carved on both sides.. with a man and woman at the top and 3 other figures below as well as the usual foliage and flowers.. on the outsides ..it is slightly deeper carving.. the inner of the main sticks has the finer work.. 3 figures and an insect in the top section and flower in the bottom section.
The 18 really thin sticks have ONLY been carved on one side.. the backs are flat.. but these sticks are very thin... they all have the usual pierced - fretted slits in all the stick apart from the top where the RIBBON would fit through.... and the outer frame of the sticks of course...these pictures are again are really beautiful and each one is differant.. with INSECTS - ANIMALS in the very top curved sections... then PEOPLE - FURNITURE - GARDEN SCENES - FLOWERS - BUILDINGS - TREES - can be seen in the other lower sections.
Looking at these sticks ..I can see in a small number of places where the fine slit has just broken through into another one... which is only about 5 of the sticks.. one stick has a small hole in the circular sections just below the ribbon part..it is in overall very good antique condition.
Looking at the fan from the side when they are all laid flat...you see it has naturally curved.. this happens..if you are into this sort of antique you will know what I mean and know this to be normal....there is slight brown staining near the bottom of some of them ...this MAY be coming from the pin which holds all the sticks in place...not sure.
This fan is MISSING its ribbon and it has NO box either...the ribbon would be the finest silk and is 2mm wide only.. to get through the ribbon slot.
The sticks are 6 and half inch long x 15mm wide at the top and 3mm at the bottom thinnest part x 2cm deep when all closed up...it has NO restoration or badly broken areas.. a really nice fan worthy of being in ANY good fan collection.
Please see close up pictures for more detail.
Conversion ... approx... 2.5cm = 25mm =1 inch
