Attractive Antique Chinese Lacquered Fan-Painted Characters on sticks. Click images to enlarge Description This is an Attractive Antique Chinese Lacquered Fan, length approx. 10½ inches. The sticks are interesting, as the Chinese characters etc. are painted, with a lot of gilding also. Faces are also painted, not inlaid. A few originally would have had mother of pearl jackets, but only two are left, one of these partially. The reverse has a gilt painted design. The paper leaf shows a Spanish bull fighting scene on one side and dancing figures on the other. Probably made in China for the Spanish markets. Condition:-Sticks are good, only rubbing to the lacquer and gilding {see photo's}. Leaf sadly is very fragile, with folds splitting and tape holding them in places. Sticks could be re-used. A kind ebayer sent this information:-This is though a wholly European fan. The interruption of trade caused European fan makers to try and fill the gap for the lost imports. This was first attempted in Spain and as early as 1853 the Spanish were making fan leaves in the “Mandarin Pattern” style. The Spanish too emulated the sticks and guards and in fact there were Chinese craftsmen working in fan factories in Spain. A somewhat later example (1880-90) has a leaf made in France and the sticks and guards made in Spain, but yours has an obvious Spanish leaf. I have been studying, publishing and writing on Chinese and Western fans for 40 years. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Photo's are not actual size, please see description for measurement. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Payment to be made within 48 hours of auction end! ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ FOR SALE NO RESERVE Items can be combined for postage for items won within 4 days, but please pay for each item within the 48 hour time stated and I will adjust postage thus saving you money. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ International buyers All Items will be posted at international signed for rates.
