Fan-tastic Find

The whole reason I hit junk shops every chance I get, other than to pick up great orphaned photos, is the opportunity to discover something like this just sitting on a shelf waiting for me to barter for its ownership.

This gorgeous Erres table fan, from what I've been able to surmise, was manufactured by the Dutch trading company R.S. Stokvis & Sons. I can't seem to find a date for the fan, but its color, its clean lines and its minimalist design tell me it comes from the era of awesome.

Unfortunately, I wasn't the one who found it. Flickr user kaylovesvintage discovered it in a Dutch charity shop and posted a picture of it to elicit my jealousy.
