Japan Folding Fan Mt Fuji Sailboat Bamboo Paper Sensu Fujisan Japanese Tokaido Softypapa 

Description

Old fashioned Japanese folding fan (sensu) featuring a winter scene of Mt. Fuji in the distance with a small village and sailing boat in the foreground.  This lovely old fan is made of thin bamboo tines covered with Japanese paper.  The fan is in fair to good condition though the paper is a bit frayed at the edges with some wrinkles and wears a darkened patina of age.  This fan is less than 40 years old and does not include a display stand.

Size:
Length when folded: 8.8 inches (22.5 centimeters)
Width across when open: 15.2 inches (39.0 centimeters)
Weight: 0.7 ounces (20 grams)
