Now is your chance to own an original 1920's GENERAL ELECTRIC fan in just like brand new condition.  This GE electric fan has been completely restored and is ready for another 80 years of service.    




They truly don't build them like this anymore.  This "made in the U.S.A." GE electric fan is a working piece of American history.


This fan has been refinished in a very dark, machine green that was matched to its original paint.  It is stunning. 



The four brass blades have been buffed, polished, and clear coated.  They have also been strobe-light balanced to provide very smooth operation.  The mounted blades are 12" in diameter and really move the air.




The motor cord and the line cord are gold, cloth covered, twisted wire made especially for antique restorations.  The plug is a vintage plug of the 1920"s.  It too has been reconditioned and is like new.




The base and motor housing are constructed of rugged cast iron.  The oscillator gear housing is cast iron also.  A sliding switch at the base provides a choice of  "off and three different speeds".


Refinishing involved complete disassembly, stripping to bare metal, bead blasting, and then coating.  The gun applied finish is a two part coating system, chosen for its durability and depth of color.  And it is stunning. 


You see my fans from every angle and they look brilliant in the images because they are brilliant.




Here we have a view of the oscillator gear housing, oscillator control and motor positioning controls. 


Oscillator gear housing has been packed with gear lube and is ready for another lifetime of operation.




Carrying handle is quite handy for moving this very stout electric fan.  This is a special and unique feature of this GE fan.  This is called the "loop handle".  The motor mounting and the carrying handle are all incorporated in a single, very rugged cast iron frame.





Brass info plate provides all the specs for this fan.  Original bakelite switch insulator is in very nice condition.


The new dark green felt cover fits snuggly over the base cover plate and contrasts beautifully with the deep green base.


This fan will be shipped in two separate cartons.  Some assembly will be required.  Instructions are included. Tech support via email or telephone will be available and is encouraged if there are any questions or doubts.  Special motor lube is also included. 




This General Electric electric fan has been very carefully, meticulously, and painstakingly restored.  The new owner will be proud to show it and will thoroughly enjoy using it.


I have been collecting and restoring electric fans for many years, and I stand behind my work 100%.   Also, I am a proud member of the "Antique Fan Collectors Association".


Fixed shipping cost of $30.00 is approximately half of the actual freight charges for insured USPS Priority.  I pay the balance to ensure expeditious delivery.  Packaging is done with new materials and cartons.
