Fabulous & rare antique Chinese or Oriental export papier mache or lacquered fan casket with hand painted figural decoration and serpentine shaping! We had another similar piece, complete with its original fan, several months back and it sold immediately. This one does not have the fan but, as all of you collectors out there will know, the boxes are much more rare than the fans! What better way to accent a collection of either expanding fans or table boxes!
Very good condition! Some wear to the painted decoration but no other damage or repairs. See pictures for measurements.
