1930s Brass Blade Fan For Sale

5 Apr

We have another cool brass blade fan for sale. Manufacturer on this one is Graybar. Pretty much the same style and design as the GE fans of this era. First Graybar fan I’ve seen. When we found this one, we didn’t even know what we had. Out of the 5 old fans I found recently, this is the only one we had left. I decided to finally give it a good cleaning and under the silver rattle can paint job, I realized this jewel was brass. So a few hours and a ton of elbow grease later, here’s where we are.

 

It’s got power and the motor hums, but the blades aren’t turning. As is, the price is $100. I’m going to take it apart and have a look at the brushes and motor and hopefully get it running. Now’s the time to get it cheap!
