Folding fan

Folding fan type "parasol" or cockade in the shape of a wheel (Paipai) of woven rice straw, with a handle that is also made of straw that when closed serves as a guard and a rosette of the same material in the upper part that when opened remains in the center . It lacks decoration.

The double silk tassels do not belong to it originally.
