History of Artefact When she was a teenager she travelled from Shanghai to Hong Kong, she met a lady (a teacher seamstress) who accepted her to work in a factory in Hong Kong and gave her this fan as a present to welcome her. Her job involved making Chinese costumes (all aspects of a costume). Shanghai is renowned for its dressmaking / costumes.

Previous Owners None
Special Memories She loves using the fan because of the beautiful fragrance that comes from it. Always used when the weather is hot.
