Got this from a collectors estate. Fan runs and operates very well on all 3 speeds with a switch on the pedestal base. I ran this fan for quite a while on low and then less time on the two higher speeds. The stop is on the same switch. Fan would oscillate if it wasn’t MISSING one screw which you will see in a photo…. The original paint, emblem, cage, pedestal and overall condition is very good. Note photos for some scuffing on pedestal. Fan height is 50 + – without extending. I snipped the cord below the housing and again at the pedestal… THE FAN ONLY NEEDS A SIMPLE TWO REPAIRS TO BE RUNNING AGAIN AS IT DID FOR ME….. You may want to rewire the entire fan for safety and peace of mind. The original wiring is in working condition but there are some iffy areas on the wiring including near where I made my snip near the top. 1949 General Electric Vortalex M. 12 Adjustable Pedestal Model 4 Wing.
