The illustrations are accurate. Good overall condition despite the inevitable minor dents and scratches due to age and use. The fan was originally fitted with ribbon which was glued on the birds. The ribbon is now missing but there are still the traces of glue on each bird. A small cardboard panel is missing but. Can be easily replaced. A few chips to the wood.
