For practicality and sheer beauty few accessories can compete with the fan.
In fact, fans may be one of the oldest accessories.
As the folding fan spread in popularity throughout Europe, royalty and the upper
classes quickly adopted it as a symbol of class and social status. During the
Elizabethan era men and women of the court used fans not only as a charming
fashion accessory, but also as an important social tool. Members of the court and
upper class began using fans to further private social intercourse between the sexes.
An alphabet of the fan spelled out meeting places for romantic rendezvous and the
number of blades or sticks revealed indicated the time.
