Anybody have one of these? Tab foot brushed motor, an ad shows it was made in 1915-1916But someone else said the tags prefix dates thye fan to 1929? Were the Italians really that far behind us
in design?

Have you checked out the Simon Cutting series in the info/reference section?  Possibly the phase 2 description? http://www.fancollectors.org/info/Marelli%20Phase%202.pdf  I know there’s also a fairly new online resource by three Marelli experts, last I looked at it was about a year ago but very impressive work in progress. See https://marellifan.wordpress.com/

Nice. Shipping from outside the US?  Nerve racking but I had a good experience. CA - Corrente alternada (AC).

  Here is the ad copy -the fan's most recent history!!


Here we have a fan that I bought about 19 years ago because my brother was into fans HEAVILY.  We lived so far away never got the chance to do anything with this, with him.  He is now 85 and not well.  He can no longer see very well and so his loss is your gain.  I know the fan is worth at least what I paid for it so please bid only if you are interested.  The blades spin. It measures 16 Inches tall by 13 inches wide.  It has not been restored in anyway. The paint looks to be in good condition.  It has the original wire and the blades look brass to me along with the cage.  This is how I have had it for all this time. I will answer any questions you may have. This would be worth mega bucks to the right person so bid away.  Thanks for looking.  I am also putting up a GE as well.

Steven, from what I’ve seen, that fan is from the 20s. But we all know Jan is the guy to ask! :D I own this Marelli Auretta: circa 1912.

Per Jan Hendricks:
Euro model debuted in 1913 - - but some models continued into the 20s - - hope the serial number is there!
I studied Spanish but not Italian.
