If Fanimation's Fitzgerald is to be believed, it's kind of pricey to buy a fan that won't ug up the room you plan to put it in. This oscillating blower sits inside a funky, modernized shell-shaped metal housing with an oil-rubbed bronze or satin nickel finish. A 4-position rotary switch, 3 speed settings, 8' power cord, and hardware included for optional wall mounting make the fan as utilitarian as it is decorative. Even if a Tar-jay bargain it is not.

The Fitzgerald stands 15-1/2" tall and 12-1/2" wide x 11" deep. Maker Fanimation has made a name for itself as a peddler of contemporary, unique, and sometimes strange ceiling and tabletop fans.
