Caught my eye in a recent Marketplace search, but it’s not for sale. Is it the shed mess or was there a Vorty mounted in a chrome stand? Never saw one but the cage looks like the 16” size.

GE made a rollabout fan, but it did not look like that. It had 3 metal blades like their box fans in the late 1950's to early 1960's. I don't know all the years their rollabouts were made, but the only one I've seen in person was very early 1960's. That garage fan looks like something someone rigged-up.

You can see the base. I think it's just sitting on top of that blue thing.

I asked her for a rear picture (in the interest of collectors). Weird how that chrome frame is so close. Hey, I wish I thought of it...
