For Your Consideration


An Antique Cantonese Carved Ox Bone Export Brisé Fan dated to around 1820

Description

This lovely fan was made specifically for export to the European market. It is made of 23 carved and pierced ox (cattle) bone sticks that are connected via the original silk ribbon. The two guardsticks are carved with two figures and a dragon. The inner sticks are intricately carved on one side with the usual dream garden figures within a landscape. There are many figures engaged in different activities, e.g. peasants with their tools, peasants carrying food, noblemen seated around a garden table, noblemen in boats, a nobleman on a horse and figures resting under trees. I also discovered a dog, several birds and various sea shells and mussels. Many figures are carrying hand fans and hand screens. There is a round cartouche in the centre for the owners monogram.
The fan measures approx. 7.5" long and 13.25" wide at its widest point. The measurements for this fan in centimeters are 19 cm long and 34 cm wide.
The fan is in very good condition, but not perfect (see photos). The third inner stick on the left side is missing a small portion of bone on the top ride corner and has small break-outs (see photos). The left guardstick has a small hairline fracture (it is NOT a break, just a small fissure that most likely happened during carving)(see photo). There are also several inner sticks that are missing small filaments and a few tips are slightly warped (visible when the fan is closed)(see photos).
