Vintage Antique 20's Emerson 29645 Oscillating 9 Inch Brass Fan Works Rare Jr B For Sale
I believe thisoscillating Emerson brass fan is know as the Jr. B. The brass blade measures 9 inches across. The cage measures 9.5 inches. This fan is in "as found" condition. Considering it's ageit'sin great shape. The cage is not bent. It runs quite and strong on all three speeds. It oscillates properly and is free of any obvious major damage. I think it could be used as is. It would also make a terrific restoration project. The less than perfect issues I noticed with this item are:
It needs a good cleaning.
It has a rubber power cord which I think is replacement of the original fabric ACcord.
The base has paint loss and surface rust.
The felt pad on the bottom is stained and worn.
The brass plaque on the motor is marked type 29645.My best guess is that this fan dates to the early 1920's.
Ahard to find smaller antique brass fan. Please contact me with specific questions. Check my response you won't be disappointed. Sold as is for parts or restoration. This will be well packed so it's not damaged in transit.
