Fan inscribed with the words of Emperor Yongzheng

The seven characters inscribed on the fan are taken from a letter that Emperor Yongzheng wrote to a subordinate, Tian Wenjing. Written in plain language - a departure from the high affectation expected of emperors - the characters read: "That's the kind of guy I am." The fan has been praised for being both imperial and imperious.
