1912 General Electric Brass Electric Fan

A fine example of an early General Electric fan, in outstanding original condition.  General Electric manufactured these fans from roughly 1910 through 1915.  This fan is a three speed (high, medium, low) non-oscillating model.  The motor may be adjusted up or down. 

Brass blades and brass cage, each with wonderful patina.  Brass fittings include cage struts, screws and nuts, oiler, trunnion bolts, and motor tag.   Gorgeous brass medallion in the center of the cage with the "GE" script logo.  The base and motor housing are cast iron.  Blade diameter is 16".  Overall dimensions are.

All parts are original expect for the cord, which has been replaced with a contemporary rubber cord. 

The fan is in a remarkable state of preservation.  There is some very minor paint loss around the base - as well as some scrapes and scratches - but apart from that the original paint is outstanding.  The fans runs strong on all three speeds.

The fan is ready for display and use.

SOLD.  Thanks, Bob @ Austin, TX!
