    It's Obitsu Plastic Manufacturing Co. Ltd, apparently. I think that fan logo is/was used by various companies, with the letter inside denoting the initial of the company name (sorry if I'm stating the obvious)
    That second one looks like Japan not Taiwan to me!

    I dunno - i thought the first letter looked more like a T and the A has an I after it, plus going on the spacing of the 'MADE IN' the next word seems too widely spaced to be 'Japan'. BUT its very hard to see so maybe you're right.

    I think the only person who can confirm what it is either way is @rattanicus and a magnifying glass!

    Ah, you're right, does look like there's an I. Looking at the whole thing it looks more like a distorted JAPAN to me, though... Maybe they changed Japan into Taiwan with a scalpel :lol:

    Yeah, weird that it's scratched so badly right where that word is... Upon closer inspection, my vote goes to "Taiwan".

    Soft vinyl vintage Topo Gigio, which i thought was going to be smaller than the other one i already have by the same maker. I was more than happy he is bigger (8" high). Occasionally these pop up for a reasonable price compared to what they usually go for, and i swoop-down like a hawk. :thumbsup:

    Made in Italy.
