Fan with Fanology


8" Traditional plastic fan.  Includes Fanology-Otherwise know as The Language of Love.  

Charles Francis Badini wrote a book entitled "Fanology or Ladies Conversation Fan", first published by William Cook in London in 1797. 'Fanology" refers to the secret language of fans and courtship.  In England and early America, hand fans were used to communicate these secret messages or codes of courtship.  Below are a few of the messages that you will learn when you have the fan!

 A closed fan dangling from  the left hand-I'm engaged

A closed fan dangling from the right hand-I want to be engaged

Fanning very slowly-I am married

and many more!!!
