TOH reader Christine Costa accents her grandmother's antique desk with an old three-blade GE fan that still spins and a mid-century dime-store model that's just for show. Three more vintage fans are placed around her home, adding charm to shelves and tabletops in her kitchen, living room, and garage workshop. Whether collectible originals like Christine's or old-school replicas updated with finger-safe grills and modern wiring, vintage-style fans take some of the sweat out of summer without sacrificing style. Coming up here and on the following pages: some of our favorite retro-look powerhouses. Try it: If you want the real deal, circa , fully refurbished, cleaned, and ready to plug in. Since there's no safety grill, be sure to place it away from little fingers. Try it: In a den, where the tripod-legged, five-blade beauty will serve as a piece of functional art.
