For sale is this exquisite antique early 19thC Chinese carved brise fan featuring a multitude of figures carrying out many different activities and all surrounded by wonderful mythical beasts and dragons - fabulous! The guard sticks are carved to both sides, the front more deeply than the back. The cartouche to the centre has the initials MMW carved in it. The silk ribbon has perished and could probably be removed, however I will leave that to the next owner. There is inevitable damage to the fine background stringing but nothing too drastic - it is so fine you can see your hand through it. This beautiful fan measures 19cm long. I do not ship to China or Hong Kong. Worldwide shipping is included in the price.
