- Fans were the most significant prop in the Victorian era. Placed on the heart meant 'You have won my love'. Half-opened and pressed to the lips was an invitation for a kiss. Eyes hiding behind a fan meant 'I love you', whereas opening and closing the fan several times was a reprimand, 'You are cruel'.
