This exquisite double-sided lacquer brise fan features an intricate gilded scene showcasing a village of small islands situated on a serene lake. The sticks of the fan are beautifully decorated with a meticulously detailed landscape, complete with interconnecting bridges and small boats traversing the water.

The reverse side of the fan displays a similar scenic design, this time including a building elevated on stilts, further enhancing the captivating visual narrative.

This antique brise fan was crafted in Canton, China, during the late 19th century for the export market, catering to the growing Western demand for exotic and luxurious Asian-inspired decorative arts.

The exceptional craftsmanship and attention to detail evident in this fan's design exemplify the skill of Chinese artisans during the Canton Trade era. The gilded lacquer technique used to create the scenic imagery adds a sense of depth, vibrancy, and visual interest to the overall composition.

This antique Chinese export lacquer brise fan is a true testament to the cultural exchange and artistic exchange that occurred between China and the West during the late 1800s. It would make a stunning addition to any collection of vintage Asian decorative art or a captivating accent piece for a refined and elegant living space.
