For Your Consideration An Antique Chinese / Cantonese Carved Sandalwood & 1000 Faces Telescopic Qing Dynasty 清朝 (道光帝) Export Folding Fan dated to around 1835 - In its Original Box Description This telescopic fan is made of carved and pierced sandalwood sticks and a double handpainted paper leaf. The sticks show the usual dreamgarden flowers and figures. The leaves are handpainted the usual court scenes - the figures have applied faces and silk clothing. The fan still has its original double silk tassel attached. The fan measures 7.5" long when retracted, 10.25" long when fully extended and 19" wide at its widest point. The measurements for this fan in centimeters are 19 cm long when retracted, 26 cm long when fully extended and 48.5 cm wide. The fan is in reasonably good condition, BUT the leaf has many repaired folds on the back (see photos). I can also see evidence that someone had previously used cellotape (now all gone) to repair the fan - PLEASE DO NOT EVER USE CELLOTAPE on a fan - it leaves brown stains on the leaves when it falls off. There is also wear along the top edge of the leaf. The telescopic mechanism works smoothly. This fan comes in its original lacquered wooden box with a red cardboard interior fitting. The handpainted silk panel inside the lid is handpainted with a pheasant and peonies (see photos). The outside of the box has a few scuffs and is otherwise in very good condiition (see photos). Postage Packaging and postage via tracked and registered Airmail using the Post Office to the UK via Airmail will cost US$16.00 (£12.00), within Europe via Airmail US$16.00 (13.00 Euro), overseas via Airmail US$16.00.
