Product Information

The trend of Chinoiserie, a term European used to describe Chinese artistic traditions, first started in the 17th century, thus hand fans imported from China were very well received in the Western world. Up to the 19th century, European produced their own exquisite hand fans in Rococo style. The folding fan handled with carved luodian embellished with gilt, undoubtedly seen as an ornate and unexceptional dress accessory. The hand-painted parchment as the fan’s leaf with elegant colouring portrays European aristocrats’ way of life.

自17世紀起,歐洲上流社會十分崇尚「中國風」,作為「懷袖雅物」的中國風摺扇西傳並在當地風靡一時。這把螺鈿雕嵌鎏金扇是摺扇在歐洲發展到19世紀的產物,以歐洲洛可可風格為主,扇柄和扇骨以螺鈿雕嵌為主體,並採用鎏金工藝,奢華而別緻。紙質的扇面描繪歐洲貴族的生活景象,色調高雅,更可一窺貴族的生活狀態。
