Description
 
This listing is a vintage Japanese folding fan (sensu in Japanese) made from sandalwood - still has a bit of sandalwood fragrance to it, which is lovely when you're fanning yourself on a hot day. We don't think of sandalwood being used in Japanese fans - and this one was likely made in China for export - but we did get it in a Japanese collection of fans, so we can only verify that it was used in and came from Japan.

The carving is delicate and lacey. There's a series of inlaid bone circles across the top and down the side of the fan. This seems to be a more rare feature (based on Google searches) and no doubt adds value and distinguishes this from contemporary sandalwood fans one can find on line and adds to its value.

Pink tassel. Note size in the photos shown. Excellent condition.
