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 known as a loop-handle oscillator, given the distinctive handle and oscillating mechanism. The fan is estate fresh, and has only been gently wiped clean, with several drops of lubricating oil applied to the two oil cups. The fan appears is an excellent cosmetic condition given it is nearly 100 years old. The brass accoutrements — blades, screws, oscillating bell, oscillating knob — are all polished and shine nicely. The blades shine like a mirror! The old wiring from the base to the plug was replaced with new, and there is some minor paint loss around the bottom edge of the fan. The fan is ready for many more decades of dependable service. The blades are solid brass and measure 12 in diameter. The fan’s width is 13″ and it stands 16 1/2″ in tall. 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 (which protrudes from the back of the motor) 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.
