Beautiful Handmade Fan in Original Woodblock Printed Folder Sold by Haibara Naojiro

[Japan] Lovely hand fan in its original woodblock printed paper folder. One side shows a group of people in a small boat with Mount Fuji in the background, the other side with two white, Japanese cranes in flight. The fan has a lacquered wooden handle with, 'Made by Haibara' printed in gold in Japanese on the side. Haibara still operates in Nihonbashi, Tokyo and was founded in 1806. Haibara Naojiro (1846-1910) was the 3rd generation owner of the store.

 

Haibara. Tokyo. c1890.

 

Fan measures 38.8 x 23.3cm and folder 39.2 x 27.5cm.

 

Looks to have never been used. The small red string ties were untied to photograph the fan. There is a tiny green string holding the tassle string neatly that is still holding tight. Folder has some minor worm trails but has protected the fan very nicely. e33101062
