This black paper fan is of the century-old famous brand Wang Xing Ji, which was established in 1875 by Wang Xingzhai. Based on inheritance of the essence of Yuhang fan-making, Wang Xingzhai innovatively included black paper in the material of fans and greatly enhanced the beauty of this handicraft via painting, applique and other embellishing techniques. The black paper fans of Wang Xing Ji, known as “one fan fulfills half the functions of an umbrella” for its high quality, had not only been selected as tribute to the imperial families, but also enjoyed high popularity among commoners.
This gold-coated fan decorated with applique featuring the traditional Chinese patterns “two dragons fighting for a pearl” exudes unique elegance.
