This is an all chrome 16 CENTURY Alternating Current Fan Patented in 1914. I could find no information on this fan online so I have to assume it’s a fairly rare one. Been told the all chrome fans from this era were primarily used in sanitary settings such as hospitals and commercial kitchens. By CENTURY ELECTRIC CO. The fan runs well but requires a little help from a finger to get it going. A single spin and it takes off like a champ. There is a slight vibration but It is quiet on all three speeds and oscillates smoothly. The fan appears to be complete except the base-plate is missing and the cords were replaced before I acquired it. I recommend doing some preventative maintenance prior to regular use. Electrical inspection, lubrication, etc. The item “Antique CENTURY 16 Electric Hospital Fan Vintage Chrome Brass Patented 1914″ is in sale since Friday, May 13, 2016.
