Fans, often combined with flowers, were common motifs on early twentieth century greeting postcards. A fan shape could serve as background, frame, or both.
I even have two postcards in my "cat collection" that include fans.
Fans are most common on everyday and birthday greetings, but they are also found on holiday postcards.
Next, and last, is a novelty postcard made up of a variety of materials and add-ons.
