ANTIQUE VICTORIAN JAPANESE FAN W SALEM OREGON HISTORY - For Sale

ANTIQUE VICTORIAN JAPANESE FAN W SALEM OREGON HISTORY
Price: $150.00
Beautiful antique Japanese fan. Made 19th century and full of signatures from old Salem Oregon families, some dated to the 1880''s. Measures 12 1/4 inches in length. Fan with beautiful decoration of cranes flying through cherry blossoms. Very interesting treatment to the scene, which is divided into vignettes that manage to seperate and connect with each other. Exceptional range of colours - from bright pink to subtle greens and golds, with lots of fine black outline. The reverse side has a simple spray of foliage, beautifully and tastefully done with the subtlety and elegance associated with Japanese art. The sticks are wooden with scrolls painted on the guards. Connected by buttons made of mother of pearl and what might be copper. The fan was signed in the 1880''s by a number of people, all from Salem, Oregon. We were told that some of the names are of well-known Salem families. The date is clearly written in some cases. Condition is generally very good with some wear on the creases, especially near the top of the fan, as shown magnified in the ''photos.
