Folding fan, the sticks and guards are richly decorated with motifs inspired by Chinese painting. The leaf is painted on one side with assemblages of Eastern wares typically collected by Europeans in the eighteenth century as signifiers of taste and prosperity. A bustling portside view of the Palace of Montalto, Naples, after a painting by Johann Bauer, occupies the central cartouche. The opposite side is painted with the Old Testament story of Rebecca meeting Eliezer at the Well after Maarten de Vos.
