Fans, hand fans
In Europe the hand fan was a fashionable ornament, a status symbol and an aid to coquetry. The typical Spanish fan has long been considered an accessory of elegant women, not least because it provides some refreshment on hot summer days. It has also established itself as a stylistic device for certain dances, such as flamenco. In Japan, too, it is a prop in traditional dances, which as an extension of the arm increases the expressiveness of the gestures.

The flatness of most of the fans invited for decorative design. The rods were carved, pierced or gilded. The leaves of folding fans were artistically painted.
 The elaborate and expensive production process made them a status symbol. This changed in the 18th century with the spread of printed hand fans at affordable prices. By the machine fan production the constantly rising demand for fans could be served, so in the 19th century most fan variations in the history of the hand fan were produced.
But the fan was not only used for cooling, it is even spoken of as a secret language, and playing with the fan became non-verbal communication with the opposite sex.
 
Even today we like to use the fan as an acceesoire, especially on hot summer days we are grateful for a little breeze.  (which helps that our painstakingly applied make-up falls victim to sweat).
