Children's fans often served as memory aids and were printed with dance steps, maps, words to songs and etiquette tips. Thus, a girl could keep her lessons close at hand in social situations. The compass fan is inspired by scenes of youthful instruction in the virtues as listed in 18th-century conduct books. 13 1/2"W x 7 1/2"H, open.
