Fan, Folding, Traditional, Japanese, Kyo-Sensu
Very nice genuine WWII Japanese hand-held fan, Kyo-Sensu type, made up of a bamboo frame covered with paper featuring ideograms. Much more than a simple comfort accessory, this type of folding fan, documented since the Early Middle Ages, is a symbol of the traditionalist spirit of Imperial Japan. A support for propaganda, such a hand fan also indicates the high rank and honorable status of its owner, both in the civilian society and in the military.
Excellent overall condition.
Dimensions fully deployed: 10in x 14.5in.
