When I got this there was about 4 square inches of paint left on it.I completely stripped this fan.Including the motor and reworked and painted it.My son was working at a body shop supply store at the time and matched the paint perfectly to the original(and put it in a spray can didn't know they could do that)Anyway she purrs like a kitten.But watch your fingers or she'll bite.This was made by Vidrio and the only thing missing is the tag that goes in the center of the cage.(I have only seen one with the tag)

    That's a beautiful job you guys did on it! Really special piece, I have several fans myself. My little Polar Cub is my favorite. All original and purrs as well.

    fans are a very collectible around my area - they dont last long at all

    Thanks van !! Funny thing is these Vidrio fans are fairly rare yet only fetch between $100 and $150 . I have one almost identical also which I redid but is missing the cage.Been searching but can't find one.

    The glass/ceramic base is something special. Hoping the price stays low until I get one.
