This offering is for an original vintage Small General Electric Oscillating Electric Fan in very nice untouched condition. The tag on the base states in part GENERAL ELECTRIC CAT 49X492 NO. 5 SPEC 272687 V. The fan features six aluminum blades with a steel cage and supports. The fan is also marked “GENERAL GE ELECTRIC” on the tag on the front of the cage. The fan measures app. 13 in overall height to the top of the cage, the cage itself measures app. 10 in diameter and the blades measure app. There is a single toggle on off switch mounted above the makers tag. The runs well and the oscillator works properly. There is a minor bit of noise in the blades when it first starts but it seems to settle out once it’s up and running. The two strand head cord has some wear so if you plan on using the fan I would recommend replacing it. The cord looks like it was replaced at some time. I would also certainly think it should have a complete cleaning prior to your actually planning on using it. The painted finish has some typical scattered wear and soiling most notable to the back side of the motor and to the base. If additional photo’s are needed or you have need of answers to questions we do not address we will be happy to supply them. WE USUALLY SEND OUR INVOICE WITHIN 1 HOUR OF THE AUCTIONS ENDING.
