Nothing unexpected with the fragile material of the box and the age of the fan and box. The fan measures about 16 1/2" across and about 10 1/4" from top to bottom when closed, including the ring at the bottom.The box is 10 1/2" from end to end and 1 3/4" from top to bottom. Rare and wonderful piece that is absolutely a work of art!
