Hello All.

I came across this little oddity, and bought it.

It works perfectly, and reminds me of the hassock fans that I like so much, but this one is for the desk, and has a little "hidden" ashtray at the top.

It doesn't really fit my extremely modest collection, so I wanted to sell it- was hoping to get $130.00 for it, but thought I would check in here to see what you all thought.

I haven't seen one like it apart from one that was incomplete, and a different color..

Suggestions about this? Uploading photos. The fan is more bluish in color than appears here (to me).  The last picture is closest- the lighting in my office is not great.

Hi Keith - welcome to our little corner of the world.

That's a nice little fan you have. Those are not all that uncommon, but it's somewhat unusual to find them in as good condition as yours appears to be and with the ashtray included. I've seen numerous of those fans which looked decent and ran fine, but the ashtray was missing. They also came in a couple different colors.

All that being said, the price you are asking is fairly high. As with any antique, it's all about what a buyer is willing to pay and what the seller is willing to accept. Of course there is also "retail" prices versus what collectors know a fan is worth. You may find someone willing to pay your price. Others may chime in with an opinion, but at one of our swap meets, a fan like yours would probably be priced somewhere between $40 and $75.
