I think I would have bought that for $39, looks to have that much in parts & for conversation you can't get better entertainment for that amount these days!!

And they think the paint and jewels made it sell. If they would have exposed the brass blades they would have got another $50 out of it.

Sad part is it was the only fan, other than a couple of poor dime store fans I even saw in 4-5 stops.  I almost bought it, but was afraid to encourage George to make more of them:D

Or maybe more? Is that a 29645 under all that bling?
The cage is off of something else....but if it runs I would pay 100$ for that.

Cheers,
Bill

Looks like a 29645 to me priced at $39, with wrong cage like you said.

I wonder if they balanced the blade after they precisely placed those wing jewels?  And yeah, I’d buy it. A putty scraper and sandblaster will quickly remove the bedazzling!

I'd have bought it and "de-bedazzled" it.
