Fans are a fascinating collectable and an important antique and vintage fashion accessory. They have been used from very early times and by the most primitive peoples as cooling devices and for winnowing and activating fires. They have had a role in ceremony and are often objects of great beauty and elegance. There are some superb examples of fans in many of our museums and the role of the fan has evolved as a courtship device with a secret language and also as an advertising tool - particularly with the paper fans that were used for promoting champagne, night clubs and other things in the art deco 1930s period. I recommend the Shire Publication 'Fans' by Helene Alexander ISBN 0-7478-0402-B for further reading.
