condition: excellent
make / manufacturer: Fan of Kyoto
I am selling a vintage (over 50 years old) decorative fan of Kyoto. It is a hand painted scene of peasants working with their animals. There is some Japanese writing in several places. Comes with a wooden piece that hangs on the wall which you can place the opened fan on. In excellent vintage condition. There is a piece of paper that explains what the fan represents to Japanese culture. It reads:
"Japanese Fan originated in Kyoto in seventh century. It is made of just bamboo and paper. Those with white papers were often used by young lords and ladies in the middle age to write down a love poem on it and it was presented to their sweethearts. ... Japanese fan is a kind of handicrafted art."
