Framing Hand Painted Chinese Fan and Care??

Post by joemaxhammer » Feb 27, 2013 8:28 pm

Can anyone suggest the best way to frame a hand painted Chinese fan? Also what is the best way to care and store the fan, open or closed? Thank you in advance.

I would store it closed when not on display. Most people just hang the fan on large hooks on the wall. However, I've also seen nice displays of fans in shadow-box-style frames.
