Fans Can Speak The Victorian Language of Fans

The Victorian Language of Fans

In Victorian times the ladies had an unspoken "fan" language

If a young lady held her fan to her lips, it begged a kiss

Dropping it meant friendship only

Drawing it across her eyes meant an apology

The fan placed near the heart signaled You have won my love

Did she hide the eyes behind an open fan ~ I love you

Opening and closing the fan several times ~ You are cruel ~

Fanning slowly meant I am married

Fanning quickly meant I am engaged

Twirling the fan in the left hand
~ You are being watched
