19th century fanmaking

What, exactly, would a fanmaker in early/mid 19th century France... do? (I'm specifically interested in 1820-1835, but the rest of the period would be useful to know as well.) Besides make fans. What kind of materials would be used? In what setting? What kind of training? There's a good amount of information out there just Google-wise on what fans would look like and when they were used, even some of the materials they'd be comprised of (I'm personally more interested paint-wise, and how materials would be obtained if it wasn't in a factory/workshop setting) but fairly little about who'd be doing the work.

Terms searched: 19th century fanmaking, 19th century fanmaker, Victorian fanmaking. (Honestly, I'm not sure what else to search for.)
