FINE ANTIQUE CHINESE SILK EMBROIDERED FAN CASE WITH FAN
Fine Antique Chinese Silk Hand-Embroidered Fan Case with Fan - Qing - The case beauifully hand-embroidered in Seed or Peking Knot and and Stem stitch with Chinese Characters within shaped panels, Ruyi symbols decorating the ends, all in soft colors on a turquoise silk ground; suspended by a braided silk cord with two porcelain beads, each hand-painted with a flower and leafage.
The exceptional che-shan (Folding Fan), is paper, the sticks with the highly-prized mottled bamboo (Hsiang-fei), and is expertly painted with two Meiren in a boat with a Dignatary, quietly fishing, his pole in the water, his teabowl close by, adjacent to the shoreline with rocks and trees, a bridge in the background, in soft colors and gilt. The reverse is an allover pattern of calligraphy on a black ground. The Condition is very good commensurate with age and use, there is a small worn place on the bottom of the fan case, some thinning of the fabric and some separation at one side. The fan is in very good condition with a separation of the paper on one stick; some old sticker residue on one side of the frame. It's an exceptional piece ! It's very unusual to find the fan with the case. I think the photos speak for themselves ! ! !
Fan Width: 19 3/4 in.
Fan Height: 11 1/2 in.
Fan Case Length: 11 1/8 in.
Fan Case Width: 2 1/8 in. at the Widest Point
