This is quite a large fan, the guards being a tad over 12 long. They are beautifully and deeply carved with figures and flowers.
The screen is double sided. On one side there are peony flowers, birds and insects embroidered in silk on a silk background. The other side is dominated by a peacock (or feng bird) surveying a scene of butterflies, flowers and a couple of birds thrown in for good measure.One of the 14 sticks has a clean fracture held together with some clear tape but apart from that, the fan is in immaculate state.
