We were brought this beautiful Chinese fan for framing. Our customer chose a dark stained walnut frame with a simple off white backing card.
We used a spacer/fillet to hold the glass away from the fan and backing, using the depth of the frame, as you can see in the above photograph. We then secured the fan to the backing using black nylon thread so that it won’t show against the handle etc. Specialist “water white” art glass was used, which is anti-reflective and virtually invisible to show this piece at its best.
