Folded fan, double sheet of embroidered cream silk. Down at the top edge. In a soft harmony of colours, a large phoenix is embroidered, resting on a rosebush in bloom. Four cranes are approaching from the left, while two others have joined a pond with water lilies.
On the reverse, branches of roses in bloom attract insects and birds. Ivory mounting*. The absence of carvings on the throat emphasizes the quality of the decoration of the deeply carved plumes of roses (6 mm thick), pagodas and figures in gardens.
