A thick curved handle is decorated with a repeating register of concentric diamond motifs, and a corded handle with a fur-wrapped top projects from the upper corners. The fan component is comprised of dozens of individually twisted tassels secured to the bottom of the tumi-shaped handle with gold-colored thread. A wonderful and intriguing ceremonial example!
