Talk about eye-catching advertising! 

—–
In the early 20th century, Chase and Sanborn literally had their ad in your hands and in front of your eyes. Before air conditioning was invented just about every household had a hand-held, folding fan to use during warm weather. This folding paper fan is from the collection here at Southold Historical Museum. On one side is an attractive, colorful, sweep of flowers.

The reverse has an advertisement for Chase and Sanborn Teas. Chase and Sanborn, which was started in 1862, imported and sold both coffee and tea.
