Does anyone recall when these CINNI fans were being sold in the US?  Were they in Restoration Hardware or where else?   What year(s) were they being sold?
It looks like the fan Steven posted above might be from the same factory; note the switch area and the base even looks similar.   This Cinni will be for sale $45 + shipping if anyone is looking to add one to their collection.  Runs and oscillates well and is very clean.

The OP has work from a maker who used a poor reproduction as a basis to create a brass fan cage. 

Quality control from overseas manufacturers producing items for different markets, I've been told, requires oversight.

On the first fan
The cage is too big
Needs to be a bit smaller
Otherwise a nice looking fan 🙂👍
