Today I actually took a photograph that I like !
I think these fans are very pretty.
They are made from 100gsm and 200gsm (acid free) paper and have hand-painted gilt sticks and trim.
Each one is further embellished with two hand-made tassels made from embroidery thread.
They are fixed open and do not fold up.
Although – just like a real fan – they need to be treated with respect, they are quite robust and will withstand moderate handling.
They vary in size, but none is more than 3/4 of an inch (2cm) tall and 1 and 1/2 inches (3.8cm) wide.
Please note – these handmade fans are not ‘toys’, they are ‘collector’s items’
