Mid Century Desk Fan

9 Aug

Vintage Mid Century desk fan made by the Hunter Division of Robbins Myers. Very high quality vintage fan made In Memphis, Tennessee in the 1950s. This fan has large 16″ “pizza slice” blades. In original unrestored condition, black paint with nice patina. Please see all photos and realize this is an unrestored “barn find” and does have minor surface rust, chipping and patina.

The fan is in perfect working order, runs great, and operates smoothly in all speeds, and oscillates perfectly. Power cord had been replaced at some point and is in perfect, safe condition.

Any questions, please ask.

Available for purchase in our Etsy Shop.

Rustic Table Lamp

8 Aug

This one of a kind table lamp is made from an old primitive barn find rabbit trap. Frame is made of wood, crudely fashioned, but well built, with various styles of chicken wire. Lamp has a nice rustic look and is very cool. The trap stands on it’s end, bottom “door” slides out to gain access to the inside to change bulbs. The lamp was wired up with two bakelite style sockets, wired with vintage style cloth covered twisted wire, and comes with two vintage “Edison” style coil filament light bulbs. Cord is approximately 8′ long and plugs into a standard wall outlet, with vintage style plug. I knew when I found this thing, it was a great candidate to be cleaned up and repurposed.

Very cool piece and makes a great addition to your farmhouse, cottage, living room or office.

Dimensions: 14″ high x 7″ x 7″

Vintage Berry Crate and Baskets

8 Aug

You don’t see too many of these anymore. Vintage wooden strawberry baskets and crate. Wooden crate has a hinged top, open up to reveal two layers of small balsa-style wooden baskets, once used to transport strawberries to market.

Crate has a nice medium colored stained finish, two levels of wire/wooden baskets, all intact, 16 total, with wooden separators. Crate has a couple cracks in the slates, but overall very solid and usable. Makes a great display and conversation piece. This is a true barn find straight from Pennsylvania.

Dimensions:
24″ long x 12″ deep x 12″ high
