1909-11c. THE ADAMS-BAGNELL ELECTRIC COMPANY, CLEVELAND, OHIO, U.S.A, 12" ANTIQUE DESK FAN
One of the most beautifully sculptured cast iron desk fans ever manufactured, the 12" Jandus non-oscillating desk fan was manufactured in smaller quantities than those of larger companies such as G.E. or Westinghouse. Though they were a smaller firm, Jandus maintained a strict standard of excellence in their product design and offered some of the most innovative ceiling and desk fans ever conceived. Adams-Bagnell purchased General Electric motors to manufacture this version, but also produced this model with their own A-B motors for a short period of time. This particular fan features a seldom seen centrifugal-start motor design .
The flowing design of this model makes it an exceptionally stylish fan when used as a wall mounted model and the fan will convert to this position with ease without disturbing the wiring. The yoke mounting allows the head of the fan to swivel and tilt positioning the air in the direction that is desired.
This particular fan has an exceptional original japanned enamel finish seldom seen after nearly 100 years of use. It starts without hesitation and runs well. This particular fan has already had the blade professionally repaired and balanced for smooth running. Available from As/Is Unrestored to our Premium Full Restoration
