8" x 13" when open and really pretty. This is definitely a great alternative to an expensive fan, especially if you are starting out in reenacting or just for fun.
Carved ribs with painted center. Metal post with pretty tassel. If it's too big, and you want smaller say for a child, etc, you can easily cut the invisible string and tie two or more ribs together so that it doesn't open as far. You can easily make it your own by painting over the design on the front, and creating your own on the back.
Why not paint your initials on the first rib so that every knows that it's yours?!
Colors may not be what you see on your screen due to many reasons, but it the exact product photographed here.
