Picked today!! 2 small Cinni fans. Very cool little fans. They are European (220V 50Hz) other than that I don't know much about them.

Where can I get the plugs to rewire them?

How can I run them here? What kind of transformer do I need?

How old are they?

I am willing to sell them if someone is interested.

Cinni fans are from India and were popular in the 1990's. The were expensive when they were new (around $100.00 US for 12-inch desk model) but I don't think they are very collectible now.

I think it was Pottery Barn that started selling Cinnis in the 1990s. They were the closest to a vintage looking new fan. by the early 2000s, the market exploded with vintage lookalikes and by that time, Cinni had disappeared from the market, no one was going to pay their prices when Vornado and others were making quality vintage looking fans, it seemed......
