JAPANESE UCHIWA RIGID HAND FAN Vintage Asian Chinese Paper Pien Mien Ping Shan
An asian rigid Hand Fan (Uchiwa).
We are pleased to present this pretty Asian Hand Fan for your consideration. It is an Uchiwa (rigid) style, and features a scene of Mountain Trees on one side.
The Fan measures 19-3/4 inches high (from top of fan to bottom of handle), 13-3/4 inches wide, and 1/2 inch thick (at bottom of handle). It weighs 3 ounces.
The paper portion of the Fan is in good shape, except around the edges where there is a slight amount of chipping to the edge, with a couple of tiny tears seen on the back side. A ring of silver or gray trim where the paper joins the handle shows some deterioration and is about 25 percent missing on the front, more so on the back side. Despite these small flaws, the Fan presents well and has no significant defects. We rate its overall condition as very good.
This is a charming piece with an attractive visual scene. It would make a wonderful addition to any collection!
