Antique General Electric Pancake Fan Patent Dates 1890 1895 1901 (see picture of plate). Fan does not have a fan cage. The fan blades measure approximately 5 1/2 Long. The case measures approximately 7″ in diameter and about 3″ thick. The base with the motor stands about 141/2 high. There is no knob on the switch. I did notice the shaft holding the fan blade can move about 3/4 out from the case if you pull on it. I did power it up directly with the two terminals on the motor case and it did run as long as the shaft was pulled the 3/4 out. If you try to run it with the shaft 3/4 pushed back in it shuts down or blows a fuse. I did not test anything with the switch on the base.. Please use the pictures for determining condition and possibly any missing parts as the pictures are part of the description. I make an attempt to describe each item accurately. The listings contain pictures and they should be referenced for you to evaluate condition. Id rather you had the information you want now than be unhappy later.
