The fan is very well made and quite beautiful. It arrived very well protected with many layers of paper around the storage box. I feel that because Novica takes such great care in shipping their packages, that they honor their artists with a very professional presentation. As an artist myself, I am very impressed.

Absolutely beautiful "church fan" and gift ! I could not be more pleased. The color and pattern differs from picture shown here but I am so pleased that it does not matter. The color is the most differed but still a beautiful color received and not that far off. The gift wrapping also beautiful and well wrapped to protect the fan; even the box is really nice. I wish it had a cloth sleeve to store in my purse as the box would be a bit ackward, but that will not stop my ordering. This makes gift giving really easy for me as I plan to make this a go to gift. Arrived before the estimated date of arrival; I am so pleased! I can't wait to use and decide which ones I want to order next!
I bought this fan for everyday use, and have been very pleased with it. Unlike paper or silk fans, this is substantial in the hand. It is strung with monofilament, not thread, so the construction is not fragile. Equally important, the appearance of the ebony wood and carving give it a graceful appearance. I'm buying another one!
