1932-34c. General Electric Company, U.S.A., 12" Oscillating Antique Desk Fan
General Electric entered the decade of the 1930s looking to the future of electric fan production. This included GE’s adopting an overlapping blade design on their premium desk fans. They called the new fan blade the “Quiet Blade” and adopted it on their 9”, 10” and 12” Premium Fans. The “Quiet Blade” series of desk fans were very successful and many are still in use.
The 12” Quiet Blade GE shown in this gallery is an heirloom fan that served a Maryland physician throughout the good doctor’s career. His son, also a physician, sent the fan to us and asked could we bring it back to life while preserving everything from the fan. The aluminum blades had suffered the worst damage through the years, but we were able to restore them to serviceable condition. The rest of the fan received our full premium restoration and was completely restored in our standard finish. The fan now represents the family and will be passed down to serve as a reminder of loved ones who once owned it. We are proud to be a part of its heritage.
