This listing is a vintage Japanese folding fan (sensu in Japanese). See videos below on how the paper version of these fans are made - it's quite an elaborate and precise process. Dance fans are larger, wider, and sturdier than ones made for everyday use

This fan is a gorgeous example of the shimmer and sheen that  draws the eye during a Japanese traditional dance. Fans are an extention of the dancer's hands, fluttering as cherry blossoms or waving to beckon the viewer...

Bands of sunrise colors - orange, purple, and cream - glisten in the light.  Same on both sides.
