Fresh from an estate and a small collection of fans is a wonderful brass blade vintage oscillating fan that dates from the 1920s, and was manufactured by the General Electric company. The fan is estate fresh, and has only been gently wiped clean. The fan is in outstanding cosmetic condition, with new paint (the color is faithful to the fan’s original hunter green paint), although there is some very minor paint loss to the oscillating gear housing (that protrudes from the back of the motor) and the cage. The brass accents — blades, screws, nuts, oscillating bell, oscillating knob — are all polished. Green felt was applied to the bottom of the fan to ensure surfaces on which the fan set were not marred. The old wiring was replaced with new, and operating parts were cleaned and oiled. With the restoration the fan is ready for many more decades of dependable service! The blades are solid brass and measure 11 in diameter. The fan is roughly 13 1/2″ wide and 17″ high. The base, motor housing, cage, struts, are all made of steel — the fan is extremely solid. The solid brass oscillating knob on top of the oscillating housing engages/disengages the oscillating mechanism. The fan features GE’s popular “S-wire” guard, with wires on the front of the guard in an “S” shape. The fan also features GE’s iconic logo in the center button. In addition to operating on a desk or table (flat surface), the fan was also designed to for operation on a wall — it can easily be mounted to a wall for vertical surface via screw holes in the base, and tilted appropriately. The fan is a three speed model and runs and oscillates smoothly and quietly on three distinct speeds, and puts out an impressive breeze. This fan is ready for immediate use and is a guaranteed conversation starter. In addition to the practical use of providing air movement, the fan could also be used as wonderful and stylish accent item in a range of settings vintage home, beach house, office, second home, etc. As it really 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! Rest assured the fan will be expertly packed – it will be securely wrapped with 4-5 layers of bubble-wrap, double-boxed, and very securely packed.
