    Found these at flea market, sold for fans, which damaged the very old silk!
    Details are amazing, and the embroidery is made in a way the same decor is on the reverse! When examining you can't say which face is the reverse!
    Never seen something like that...
    Unfortunately the silk is burnt by age...
    Hope you will enjoy them.

      Recently found out what they are!
      These are called "pien mien" chinese name for face cover, face screen.
      It appear it is very rare to get a pair!
