Someone in India sent me a pic of this double fan.

Says it doesn't have any tag or other identification on it.


It does look legit. 
The copies usually have some fake badge, 
usually with scripted "SE" that looks close to "GE".


It being in India, it's more likely to be a British make if not a local.


Anyone care to give it an identity (and perhaps worth).

Hi Willard. In my opinion it is a copy of the Marelli and not the real deal so not worth much at all.Many things are remade/reworked in India. 
Re: value..under $100.00 if you really like it. 
All the best

Thanks, Jim.

Marelli is one of the most common makes I spot in Southeast Asia.
Makes sense someone would make reproductions.

If I recall, the SE badge refers to Siamese Electric. They're common in Thailand. It's a shame they don't make replacement cages and blades for old fans, because they do a decent job on them, the quality of the electrical and motors leave a bit to be desired.

I suggest avoiding double headed fans because for every real one there is like a 100 fake ones.
