Fashion In History
Fan
1800
The representative example of fan in the beginning of the 19th century has an eclectic design with a monogram on the center medallion and some motifs of Oriental pagodas and pine trees on the right and left side medallions. Monograms are a typical feature of fans made between 1780 and 1815 or so. Flowers are scattered all over the fan, surrounding those motifs. Some other motifs including cows, horses and foxes are placed on the upper edge. The fans made in China for the European market mixed Chinese-style and Western-style design, and they achieved considerable popularity. This fan is known as a brisé fan, with independent hard slats called sticks tied by threads or ribbons.
