The fan has been affixed to a paper backing. Some losses to the gilt and painted decoration throughout. No apparent restorations, rips, tears, or creases. Creases and tears to the paper backing along all corners and edges, not visible when the matboard is present. The paper backing is hinged along the top right corner; the hinge has come loose along the top left corner. There is a tideline along the lower edge of the matboard and paper backing; this does not seem to affect the fan itself. Light wear to the frame; framed under glass.
