Hand Fan History
The Hand Fan makes a wonderful goth accessory in the clubs; the wispy cracking sound it makes as it is opened with one hand and cooling yourself from the smoky and music filled air...
This wonderful accessory has spanned throughout history for both fashion and functional purposes.
Their uses were moderated within strict court etiquette and ceremonial customs. It has been said that the Chinese were the first to paint designs upon the hand fan. The hey-day of fans was during the 18th century among both men and women. Men's fans were distinguished with bugs in the decoration; maybe a mosquito or beetle painted somewhere in the scene denoted the fan belonged to a man. (Can you imagine all the goth boys in clubs with spiders on their fans?) Queen Victoria discouraged the use of fans among men during the 19th century, which probably explains why we only think of heavily corsetted women using them.
