Set of two (2) gilded metal court fans with dragon head handles biting the bottom of the fan and an open-mouthed dragon head at its tops. The fans mirror each other with their elaborate pierced designs of two fenghuang (phoenix) birds flying with a sun between them and lucky bats flying above their heads. Swords, staffs, vases, lotus pods, and other objects adorn each fan's outer edges. An open scroll inscribed with the mark of the Guanxu period (1875-1908) is displayed above a fish and rolling waters. Size: 22.5" height, 18" width
