This ‘parts’ fan has been on a local selling site for some time. Probably an easy question to answer for the experts here but what type of fan is this and is it worth fixing up? No cage, switch etc. This is the only photo available.

James.... :-)

Very Desirable little MARELLI    stepped base   This fan is normally Marellis GREEN japan 
 
pls note the shape of the vent holes  ..OVAL   

..a fan you would put aside until a another marelli this size turns up  without the oval holes ,as in a standard triangle shape vent ..yankee    
 
Cage,s struts ,switches ,to supply would outway your origy purchase price 
  having no green Japan ..as yet   
  same model done in Black

Wow, thanks for the detailed answer.  The seller wants $20 for it.  I’m guessing finding another one of these fans is going to be a struggle around here.
