This is a beautiful hand painted silk butterfly fan.
It is made of a fine silk with lacquered wooden sticks, and is hand painted with four brightly colored butterflies.
There are also a few stitched on copper spangles.
The fan has a fan box which is beige watered silk with pink, taupe and beige embroidery on the top.
The bottom of the box is faux alligator board and there is remains of a manufacturers label.
I am not sure if the fan came with the box originally, but this is the way I purchased it.
Condition: Fan is very good. Box has some age wear.
Size: Fan 13 1/2 by 25 inches opened. Box is 14 by 2 by 1 1/2 inches.
