hi to everybody.

i am new here, sorry for the brute intrusion, as i am decorating a post colonial building in Vientiane Lao PDR, i heard and seen somewhere very beautiful ceiling marelli fans, they told me that are coming from Vietnam, but the owners did not know who traded them as they purchased the building with already the fans in, for sure they have been installed less then 5 yrs a go.. , i do not know if they are a replica, or really old/antique fans restored for present use.

any one may kindly help me on this purpose letting me know if they are "just a replica" or old ones restored, as well, any address of dealers/traders in Vietnam who sales them ?

any help and info is very appreciated

thank you

ciao

gerardo

There was a man in Viet Nam who restored fans, especially
Marelli. But I never had any contact with him, so don't know his name.

Binh, thanks a lot for the infos, very appreciate, do you know if Mr. Long speaks English ? as if he does not i will try to use some Vietnamese speaking friend to contact him directly, by the way the picture you posted is a standing fan and not a ceiling fan (hanged on the ceiling)

thank you

ciao

Right in the U.S. has very little information about this type of fan

According to information I know is this kind are rare outside the world market

And right in Viet Nam and so few who have this type

Congratulations you have it

Fan is a nice and rare

Dear Gerardo,

Lucky you to live in Vietiane, a peaceful enclave in SE Asia and favorite location of mine.  I live in Saigon and may be able to help you with your interest in old Marelli ceiling fans.   I have four such fans which have been refurbished and rewired at a shop in Hanoi in 2001.  I bought them in Hanoi in late 2001 and used them for the next five years.  Three of the fans are of the four (wooden) blade type, with very heavy motors, and the fourth one, a lighter motor body, three (metal) blade type.  I am not an expert on dating these fans, but can provide the model numbers for your information if you are interested.   The motor housing is black for all four and they are wired for 220v-50hz.

If something like this would interest you, we can continue the discussion.   If not, I am planning to relocate to Canada and will be shortly having the fans rewired for the power requirement there, in advance of my relocation.  Kindly advise.

Best regards,

James

Dear Gerardo,

I inspected the four Marelli ceiling fans which I mentioned in my previous mail.  Two of the large body fan types are the Marelli model "Maestralino", which, based on a Marelli catalog I found, date to 1926.   The other large body fan type is Marelli model "Tropicale", which I would estimate to be about the same vintage, if not slightly older.   The fourth fan, the smallest body, appears to be of a later vintage, and compares to a Marelli catalog fan, model AC36, dated 1960.   I can send photos of the fan housings if you are interested.

Best regards,

James in Saigon
