This fan case is made from silk satin Chinese midnight blue fabric and the edges were hand-bound with black thread. Each side of the fan case is embroidered with the finest tiny stitches. Silk thread was used to form the tiny seed stitches of the butterflies and flowers and metalic wrapped thread was used to couch the outline of the leaves. The elaborate traditional Chinese cloud pattern at the top of the fan case was formed using the couched metalic wrapped threads in a tiny looped pattern.

From the Qing dynasty period, this exceptional fan case is 12.5 inches long. It is in excellent condition.
