A slight oval shape shakudo kikka and fan motif, three fans depicted in positive silhouette sukashi set amid the petals of a partial 32-petal chrysanthemum on the ura. The petal surfaces are carved out sukidashi takabori and decorated with radiating lines of nanako. The omote is a surface design displaying more foilage including chrysanthemums, sakura, fern fronds and other plants on a background of nanako. The fans have iroe of 'worn' gold, kebori and nanako.

The arrangement of fans and kiku is refined and very pleasing to enjoy.
