I've been trying to shop for a portable fan, but I can't bring myself to purchase any of the ones I've found so far. They're all terribly designed! Does anyone own (or know of) a beautiful, well-designed portable fan?

As in a small desktop one? I'd go vintage. Etsy has some winners usually.

Dyson is the only one I can think of that is decent looking. Vintage is great, have a few myself. Just watch your fingers. They are a death trap.

I love vintage fans.


I had a pretty nice group of old brass-bladed, cast iron Westinghouse and GE fans that my folks acquired from relatives over the years. The moving company employees must have liked them too, they all got "lost" when I had her estate shipped out to California.
