Fans adorned with beautiful paintings and calligraphies have been popular among tourists and locals like. And that¡¯s what JingHua Fan House offers, beautiful hand-made fans.
This fan shop is located in the LiuLiChang Street, famous for its antiques and handcrafts. Inside JingHua, you¡¯ll find a large selection of hand-painted fans of all kinds: round, folding, and lady-style. In their studio, I watched as experienced painters painted on-the-spot themes such as landscapes, birds, flowers, and folk tales.
I picked up a folding fan. The front has a painting depicting a group of boys playing hide-and-seek. The back featured a Tang poem describing the scene. Wrapped beautifully inside a gift box, this particular folding fan sells around RMB 120.
The shop also offers other art. Their beautiful figurines include the legendary Monkey King known by all Chinese. Their paintings include landscapes and flowers.
Prices are reasonable, usually ranging from 100 to 200 RMB. The owner speaks a little English. Communication should not be a problem.
