Beautifully Hand Painted Bird And Flowers On Vintage Chinese Dressing Table Hand Held Silk Paddle Fan With Wooden Handle And Pale Blue Green Silk Tassel.
Recommended For Display Purposes Only.
This highly decorative fan is of above average quality with subtle colours and has been skillfully crafted; it looks lovely when on display.
The fan's frame is bound in black and white silk material.
There is a light blue green silk tassel at the end of the dark coloured wooden handle.
This is a private sale from a pet and smoke free home.
The fan was purchased new in the 1950's.
For most of its life it has been on display in a cabinet - away from sunlight.
The colours of the hand decoration are still fresh and vibrant.
Overall the fan is in good condition.
When one looks closely at the silk screens on either side of the frame there are a few small marks, which are commensurate with its age and do not detract from its decorative value.
On one side of the fan there are small tears in the silk near the edge of the frame.
As there is no damage to the silk on the other side of the fan when this side of the fan is on display it looks perfect.
Please refer to the photographs which accompany this advertisement to make your own assessment regarding the condition of this item.
