I believe that fan was made in the late 1990s or early 2000s as that fan appears to be one of those modern repop Vornadoes that they used to sell at Bed, Bath and Beyond at that time.

It's the VFAN Mini Classic, and is still manufactured and sold (currently $40 on Amazon).

I might be wrong ( someone correct me if I am ) but I believe the 5 blade Vornadoes  are the latest versions dating about 2012 and up.The originals that Mike Coupe re introduced dated about 2002 !! Just my thoughts !! :cool:

That sounds right Jeff.  The reproductions started out as the original 3 wing, and the later ones had 5 wings...
