Please see our latest vintage 1920s drafting table. It’s identical to this one.

Offering a unique vintage 1940’s-50’s drafting table. The fantastic cast iron hardware and knobs are an excellent example of original industrial design. The base is made of very solid oak and maple hardwoods with a pine tabletop surface. Excellent patina and desirable vintage wear to the wood surfaces. The cast iron hardware is completely functional and very sturdy. The table along with having a tilt function, is also height adjustable. It has been lovingly waxed and cleaned.

The piece is perfectly suited as a small dining table, kitchen island or desk. Excellent for small spaces in need of versatility. The ability to adjust the height makes the table perfect for use with chairs or tall stools. The industrial design lends itself well to plenty of uses in various locations. Whether it be a compact city loft or a cottage, this table will provide limitless options.

The wax finish is excellent for future care with a quick buff every so often. The table top has plenty of scratches and wear, which give testament to its age and prior use. The underside of the table top is unfinished.

MasterCraft Cast Iron and Chrome Electric Desk Fan

MasterCraft desk fan manufactured in 1947. It’s a truly well-built piece of vintage American manufacturing. Built just after World War II, it’s 8″ fan blade runs like an airplane propeller.

It runs very smoothly and fast. The motor and bearings have been cleaned, then lubricated. The fan also has been rewired, with a new power cord. There is one speed controlled by an on/off switch. This retro desk fan creates a massive amount of airflow for a unit measuring 10.5″ in height. The Chrome fittings and fan blade have been cleaned/ polished. The steel and cast iron parts received a fresh coat of paint.

This fan was built to last forever and it just received it’s 64 year service. It’s ready to give that retro look and quality to your office or home. It does have an oscillating mechanism at the rear, which does not work. I believe the gearing has worn away from years of use. It doesn’t affect the overall purpose or look of this brilliant desk fan. This is a solid metal original and after running for awhile the motor housing will become hot to the touch. This is normal, as there is no plastic on this fan.
