Commandair 16 inch 6 Blade Ocsillating Electric Fan, Catalog No. 2407, Circa 1934



A collection of images from a very large and heavy semi-restored antique electric fan. Has a steel cage and steel blades. You don't see too many 6 blade fans, particularly ones that have 16" blade diameter. Made by Diehl as a value line of electric fans that cost a little less and perhaps didn't have as many features or embellishments as others. Hard to find any real information about them though.

This line of fans is very underrated and not really considered a collector's item; however, its value has more than tripled since the year 2009 and as of 2018 has gone for more than $300 on several occasions. This may be because collector's are starting to realize what a fine electric fan it really is and the fact that more desireable fans are becoming more difficult and expensive to acquire. Some highly collectable brass blade fans can go as high as a couple of thousand dollars.

The flash from the camera reveals imperfections and discolorations that can only been seen under magnification and under abnormal lighting conditions. You can zoom in on the images if you mouse over them. During autoplay zoom is disabled. Shrinking the browser window will shrink its contents possibly making it easier to view the gallery.

Valued in the range of $325 - $450.
