Ornate Decal German D.E.W. 12" Desk Fan Nickle Blade and Guard. Simply a beautiful fan from any angle! This German made D.E.W. fan is a very impressive desk fan. The finish on this example is 100% original and still retains its beautiful ornate decal. The blade and guard are brass that has been nickle plated. The nickle has developed a wonderful rich patina that adds to the character of the fan. The fan runs on 150 volts at 3 speeds. The switch lever will need a little adjustment as it doesn't make good firm contact.
