Dating back isabeautifully hand carvedtop quality 'ox bone' brisefan made in the Canton area of China. The main scene has men on horsesand a central 'Mandarin' scene, but what is fascinating is the top carving which portrays different professions - a fish merchant, builder, fruit grower etc.
The top guard stick appears to have been repaired by a piece of white painted metal to the back, this gives it strength but is not pretty, it may have been burned. The other guard stick is in good condition, it still has the old silk ribbon which could do with being replaced so that the sticks would line up better.Note one one photo you can see bit of tape - this is holding the ribbon in ploace, it is not a repair ordamage!The fan is dirty, I have not cleaned it.
Fan is12.25 inches openand7.5inches tall. (31cm x 19cm). Please see our otheritems. Always happy to combine lots for shipping to help you save money where possible.
