Fresh from an estate and a small collection of fans is a wonderfully restored vintage oscillating fan that dates from the 1920s, and was manufactured by the Diehl Manufacturing Company of Elizabeth, New Jersey. The fan is completely restored, with shiny new paint, new cloth cord (which is period appropriate), and new felt on the bottom of the fan to ensure surfaces on which it sites are not marred. All operating parts were cleaned and oiled. Suffice to say, the fan looks as good as the day it was manufactured roughly 100 years ago, and is ready for many more decades of dependable service! The metal blades are painted a gold/brass color and measure 16 in diameter. The fan’s width is 17″ and it stands 21″ tall. The base, motor housing, cage and struts are all made of either cast iron or steel and very heavy. The build quality of the fan is incredible — you simply don’t find this level of quality today. There is a small screw below the oscillating wheel that engages the oscillating mechanism and can adjust the oscillating arc (short or long arc). The fan features a distinctive “Diehl” logo in the center badge of the cage. In addition to operating on a desk or table (flat surface), the fan was also designed to for operation on a wall — it can be mounted to a wall or vertical surface via screw holes in the base, and tilted appropriately. The fan is a three speed model and runs and oscillates beautifully on three distinct speeds, and puts out an impressive breeze. This is an absolutely gorgeous vintage fan that is ready for immediate use and a guaranteed conversation starter — and helps beat the heat of summer! In addition to the practical use of providing air movement, the fan could be used as wonderful and stylish accent item in a range of settings vintage home, beach house, office, second home, etc. As it conveys the 1920s. Fans make wonderful and highly distinctive wedding and birthday gifts — stand out from the gift-giving crowd with a restored and usable antique! Everything will be securely wrapped with 3-4 layers of bubble-wrap, double-boxed, and very securely packed.
