Description

Old fashioned Japanese folding fan (sensu) featuring the images of eggplant which are an auspicious symbol in Japanese culture.  This lovely old fan is made of thin bamboo tines covered with Japanese paper.  The fan is in poor condition as the paper is frayed with some tears and holes as well as wrinkles and wears a darkened patina of age.  Due to its condition we recommend this fan as a display item only.  This fan is less than 40 years old and does not include a display stand.

Size:
Length when folded: 8.6 inches (22.0 centimeters)
Width across when open: 15.2 inches (39.0 centimeters)
Weight: 0.8 ounces (23 grams)
