General Electric 16" Steel Blade Electric Fan, Type AV, Catalog #34021, Form S1, Serial #1302760, Circa 1917

A collection of images from a finished restoration of a very fine antique electric fan (100 years old as of 2017). A three speed stationary fan that is very heavy and runs super quiet. Pushes a lot of air even on the lowest speed. This unit was originally a very rusty "Hunter Green" type color, and as such, was stripped down to bare metal. It was primered and painted with a "Hunter Green" enamel and finally coated with clear enamel. Lastly, it has been polished and waxed. Modern "Hunter Green" is a little lighter in shade than the original paint.

The flash from the camera makes the unit look less smooth and polished than it really is. Some of the photographs are grainy, but show a fair amount of detail. There are before and after pictures. 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 $350 - $425.
