Aero style Thermair desk fan

Tax included.

A gorgeous example of 1960's Italian design. This 9 inch/23 cm red retro fan is made from Chrome and plastic by Thermair in Italy. It works perfectly and has an English plug - we think these were made for the British market. The fan can be used on a desk or shelf and is designed so that it can also be mounted on the wall.

The fan pivots on a chome ball and socket joint and has 2 speeds - on and off. The body of the fan is red plastic and the base, switch and blades are cream.

This is a rare beastie and quite collectable. This particular fan has no damage, chips or cracks.

When were Desk fans invented?

In 1882 Dr. Schuyler Wheeler invented a two blade battery powered fan (no blade covers at that stage) and patented it. It was produced by the Crocker & Curtis Electric Motor co.
