Description: Very large and spectacular 19th century Cantonese (Chinese) brisé fan, made of sandalwood, and carved with innumerable figures and motifs, as well as a cartouche for initials, still blank. 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.

Condition: Excellent overall condition, with all its sticks and guards perfectly preserved, with no damages or restorations.

Please, see the attached pictures for a better illustration of their condition.
