This wonderful fan has been preserved in a lacquer box of beautiful curvilinear design and decorated with gilt flowers and plants, and a typical scene of scholars departing in a garden. The inside sports a gorgeous hand-painted decoration of birds among flowers. This box has the very unusual feature of still having its key, which works.
