Old, Interesting Cast Iron Westinghouse Double Fan W/6 Blades Lighting Fixture? For Sale
Old and interesting Cast Iron Westinghouse double fan with 6 blades lighting fixture?
Here is an Old and interesting Cast Iron Westinghouse double fan with 6 blades lighting fixture? for your consideration.
The fan is in good condition overall with some wear marks but, no visible dents or breaks that I can see and pretty decent looking metal all around with lots of patina.
The fixture appears to be missing the lamp part on the bottom but, then again, maybe not. I am not 100% sure. Look at the pictures to make a judgement.
The fan is not tested. The blades rotate freely but, it was not plugged in so, I do not know if it works. I will not guarantee it working condition.
The blades are in good condition with maybe 2 blades on each side that have bent but, not bad. The blades might be brass but, I am not sure. They are non-magnetic. The diameter of the blades is about 12 1/8 inches.
There seems to have been some electrical tape added to the wiring on the jointed areas.
The whole body is a little greasy.
The top and bottom are rounded and ribbed and these rotate. Both fans or blade assemblies do pivot.
The label shows it to be from 1909-1910.
This is rather large and heavy. UPS will probably be the best way to ship it. Double boxing is possible but, it will increase the shipping weight and cost. I can try to remove the blades if possible (if the screw comes off and allows me to do so) and I will pack such blades in separate boxes within the larger box where the main body of the fixture will ship in. I will certainly pack it well with plenty of good cushioning. If you are offerding internationally, please ask before offerding to see if this can be shipped to your country reasonably.
The double fan fixture is sold AS IS with no returns, refunds or exchanges.
A very interesting double fan ceiling fixture.

Important rules for International buyers:
All items will be shipped with Full customs declaration. I will not declare merchandise as "Gifts".
International buyers are responsible for custom charges, duties or importation taxes.
I will only ship via Priority mail International or Express Mail International or an equivalent "Flat rate" Priority Mail Service. I cannot and will not send any items via First Class Main International since that method is very unsafe by not providing tracking or insurance.
Due to PAYPAL regulations the seller is always held financially responsible for the losses in the mail or fraud so, I cannot lie when filling customs forms and I cannot declare items as "GIFTS" and I cannot use 1st Class International Mail because if an item is lost or damaged, I am responsible for that loss or damage and if Paypal reverses the charges due to a customer not receiving merchandise or getting damaged goods, I loose financially. So. it is not that I don't want International buyers but, I need to protect you and me. I welcome International buyers and always appreciate their business, I just can't take any chances since Paypal is unforgiving even if I am not at fault plus lying about customs declarations is perjury and fraud according to the US postal regulations and I don't want any criminal charges against me in case of losses, claims or postal inspections.

Important note: The Gyrating fan is missing a little screw on the base of the upward pointing fan. The blades do seem to stay in place though. If you know how to take the blades off, please, let me know since that will make the shipping easier and safer. I can still pack it securely as it is but, it would be better if I could take the blades off. The screw at the base of the right fan is there but, it does not seem to want to come off.
