Eskimo Spider Web (Cob Web), 8 Inch Single Speed Oscillator, Model 1102J, Bersted Manufacturing Company, Circa 1947

A collection of images from a restored post World War II electric fan. Has a 2 pole motor with light aluminum blade. Since it spins close to 3600 r.p.m. (under no load) it almost sounds like a prop airplane. Registering in the pink noise range it is conducive to better sleep and improved daytime memory. The effective range for this fan is 4-10 feet and is suitable for table top usage.

Not exactly a collector's item, but people seem to be drawn to the spider web cage (sometimes called a cob web cage).

The flash from the camera makes the fan look more dusty and dirty than it really is. 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 $80 - $120.
