1941c. Emerson Electric Company of St.Louis, MO., U.S.A., Type 79646-AX 12" Vintage Desk Fan
The Emerson Type 79646-AX was the standard Emerson 3 speed oscillator of the 1940s. It features all of the characteristics of the premium quality Emerson design. Emerson produced this model in large quantities and can be considered the standard "workhorse" model of the 40s, much as its processor the Type 29646 was in the 1920s.
The split guard design that Emerson used on this model as well as others, permits the front of the guard to separate without tools for easy cleaning of the blade. The split guard feature and the single oil port for oiling, makes maintaining this model a snap.
