eBay watch: 1960s Braun HL1 personal desk fan by Reinhold Weiss


Stylish 1960s modernism and no doubt practical too, especially at this time of year. The Braun HL1 personal desk fan that is.

The work of Reinhold Weiss in 1961, it still looks the part today – another example of Braun's forward-thinking design. The motor casing is made of off white plastic with a chrome rim separating the motor casing from the fan head. There is also a light grey plastic lever switch on the casing to select speed and a perspex casing to protect the blades.

The Desk Fan is in 'very good condition' and in 'full working order', as well as being priced quite reasonably right now. Bidding stands at £2.20.

Ok, if you happen to be reading this in the Uk, it's safe to say you'll probably be hot from the unseasonal temperatures that are currently hitting these shores. You might want a fan to help you cool down – like this Pifco table fan, currently up for grabs on eBay.

Described as a 1960s model, it has a really eye-catching orange and chrome exterior that should fit into any period exterior, either on a table or wall-mounted. It's also in 'full working order' should you be worried about that.

Starting price is £15 and hopefully you'll get it before the weather turns. Wouldn't bet on it though.
