For your consideration is this antique Eck Hurricane Desk Fan, Type 22 c1915. This fan works without any funky smells or obnoxious clunking. The motor runs smoothly. The on/off switch located at the base also adjusts the speed. There are 2 knobs on either side of the motor case near the back. Each of these also adjusts the speed when twisted – for some reason that made sense in 1915. There are a trio of holes on the base, which tells us it’s meant to be fastened down. To add evidence to that, if the fan is turned on while it’s pointed upwards, the thrust will actually knock it over. Almost lost a finger discovering that little tid bit. Don’t lose a finger, don’t do what I did! The cord is old and brittle and would need to be replaced for safe use. The fan blade is about 8 in diameter, the guard adds a bit to that measurement. The fan stands about 11 tall. The total weight with the cord is 8lbs, 13oz. I can’t decide the metal used here, but the blades appear to be brass. The body has a black finish that is mostly in tact. The mfg plate reads as follows. Eck Dynamo and Motor Company. We gave it a brief polish for the portrait session. We use new boxes.
