I found this R&M fan at a flea market. I was going to repaint it but its all aluminum on the base and neck so I polished out.

I had a similar thought about a year ago. I polished the base just as you did. I didn’t paint the Art Deco stripes. I taped over them and painted the base as usual. The stripes shine up very bright and looks better than the factory gray stripes. Photo:

Personally I think I like the painted and ridges left aluminum better than polished. I may paint it.
