Hello, its been awhile but I recently bought a vintage 1949 travel trailer and would like to find a small mid century/atomic style fan. I found this picture online but cant seem to find out who makes it? It seems to be a vintage fan by the looks of the cloth covered cord.  Thanks Tom

Is that an American or European fan? It don't look familiar but it screams European to me, does it have a European 220V Plug on the end of the cord or an American 110V plug on the end of the cord?

German Prometheus heater fan combo 220V. Here is a link to one that was sold in the past.

You can get a step-up transformer from 110-220 or 120-240 volts for probably $30-$60 on Amazon.

220 volt room space heaters draw 2000 watts...
...which means you need a minimum step up transformer rating would be 2 Kva or 17 amp rating.

Not real practical. 

Best to use a 220 volt outlet like for large window AC, clothes dryer, or electric stove, or electric hot water heater.

It is a really cool looking space age heater.  I think I would just display it, and not use it...if 220v not readily available.
Happy Heating!
