Handpainted fan with mother of pearl sticks


What do you think of fans? Doesn’t it remind you of a Japanese (chink) woman in her traditional Japanese attire waving her toy-like fan and uttering some words with a charming expression on her face? You can have the same fan to boast of your ultra-ethnic possession. A Fabric leaf hand painted with three oval cartouche scenes is spanned by a floral garland.

Carved, mother of pearl sticks is painted with a floral vine pattern and joined together with a Brass loop.
