ANTIQUE GE ELECTRIC FAN
EXCELLENT BRASS FITTINGS AND BLADE
Patent: Nov. 1911
Type: AOU Form: AB
New period style wiring and power cord
Cleaned/oiled motor and bearings
Wick in fine condition and has been oiled
Oscillation gearbox opened and new grease added
A VERY NICE PERIOD FAN IN BRILLIANT WORKING ORDER
A fantastic antique GE fan! It has a very smooth motor and hums along very nicely. The oscillation gearbox works as it should. All the brass fittings are bright and the GE badge is without dings. There is one very small ding at the top corner of one fan blade. Otherwise, the fan blades are unmarked, but have plenty of scratches, which were revealed when an older repaint was removed. The fan blades could be buffed to a “like new” condition, but I believe in leaving a bit of wear on antique and vintage items. As you can see the cast iron parts have some surface imperfections, there is a very tiny paint chip on the gearbox corner and the paint has a few scratches here & there. The three speed switch works perfectly, with strong connections. The combination of the cast iron parts painted black, with bright brass and a red twist fabric cord, are a very fetching combination.
Definitely a must have for anyone interested in antique fan technology or a very nice decorator piece.
The fan is very heavy, due to its time tested solid construction. It weighs nearly 20 lbs. Packaged it would ship at around 22 lbs.
Offered at $275.- SOLD
