1908 General Electric 12" Antique Desk Fan

1908 General Electric Company, U.S.A., 12" Antique Desk Fan

General Electric's early 1908 model desk fan would be the end of the line for a model that could trace its lineage to 1894. The early 1908 model is believed to have only been manufactured for a few months when a new twin bearing design was introduced to replace it. The early 1908 model featured " modern" for the era styling that had eliminated the earlier fluted and half fluted base in favor of a smoother design.

The 1908 G.E. desk fan featured in this gallery was fully restored while preserving its original baked japanned enamel finish. This fan now commands attention at a New York law firm where it serves as a proud reminder of the quality of the products that were made in America nearly 100 years ago.

Some of the features of the 1908 General Electric Antique Desk Fan include:

  • Dimensions- 12" Blade Diameter
