According to Zhihu, a young man from Hebei, China brought a secret box passed down in his family to the Huashan Commentary program (a program specializing in the appraisal of Chinese treasures and antiques) to check. determined. When opening the box, what was inside made everyone at the studio “surprised”. It is a delicately carved feather fan with a pearl-white handle and a shape reminiscent of Zhuge Liang’s feathered fan of the Three Kingdoms period.
Seeing that, the experts in the program couldn’t help but wonder if this guy is a descendant of the Zhuge family.
Talking about the “background” of the treasure, the guy said that this fan was really left by his ancestor Zhuge Liang. Until now, his family has considered it as a treasure and kept it in the ancestral church. Only on holidays or important occasions of the family, this fan is brought out. According to this guy’s share, his family is going to compile the genealogy and need to verify the origin to be able to include it in the family tree.
Hearing that, the experts were even more anxious to see the famous fan. In the book of Truong Tu Chi, it is written that the feather fan is the oldest antiquity in Chinese history, appearing since the Shu Han Dynasty with more than 2,000 years of history.
When picking up the fan to examine, experts say that it is identical to Zhuge Liang’s feathered fan described in the famous Three Kingdoms Dien Nghia. Therefore, the appraisers said that whether it is a feather fan of Zhuge Liang or not, the value of this item is certainly not small.
After taking a flashlight to carefully examine the feathers and patterns carved on the fan’s handle, the experts present in the program confirmed that this fan was real and estimated it to cost no less than 10 million yuan (more than 33 million yuan). 8 billion dong). However, they also believe that this is not a fan that the strategist Zhuge Liang carries with him, but a fan originating from the Qing Dynasty, crafted by artisans in the imagination. Fans of this era were made from feathers of poultry and the handle was made of rare ivory.
However, after affirming the value of the precious fan, the experts also reminded the young man not to sell this treasure because he would be in trouble. Instead, they advise you to turn it over to the authorities or museum as soon as possible so that the item is preserved in the best and safest way.
The reason is because in China, the trade and possession of ivory is strictly prohibited by law. Therefore, although the fan is extremely valuable, but the ivory is banned from trading, so it is unlikely that any rich customer would dare to buy this item. As for the young man, he was both happy and worried, and part of him did not completely believe the words of the experts, so he still took the fan home and decided what to do with it later.
According to Zhihu, at the Hoa Son commentary program, there are often historical artifacts that cause such a stir in public opinion. Before that, another guy also brought the “sword of Trieu Van” in the Three Kingdoms for appraisal. He bought this treasure from abroad for 120,000 yuan (more than 4 billion dong) and was completely confident that he could buy the real thing because the sword body had 8 ancient characters engraved on it: “Mau Vuong Mau Vuong, fake only Vu Duong.”
However, experts believe that the item is not Trieu Van’s but belongs to the family of the Viet King Cau Tien with an extremely high value, estimated at more than 4 million yuan (more than 13.5 billion dong). The boy “one step to the clouds”, after 1 night.
However, the appraisal of antique experts is sometimes right and wrong. Therefore, those who want to inspect antiquities should use scientific methods that will give more objective and accurate results.
