Great 1930s Art Deco Hunter Oscillating Electric Fan
NO Reserve Auction!
Fresh from a local estate and a collection of fans is a nice vintage 1930s fan manufactured by the Hunter Fan and Ventilating Company of Memphis, Tennessee. This model is called the "Zephair." Interestingly, Hunter was one of the first companies to manufacture fans, beginning with their famous ceiling fans in the 1880s - and they are still in business today.
The fan features 16" diameter steel blades, a steel cage, and steel motor housing and base. The original black paint is still in excellent condition. The fan is "estate fresh," and is well made - heavy and substantial.
The fan is an oscillating model, and the fan head can be tilted up and down via an easily adjustable wing-nut on the "neck" of the fan. It is also a wall-mount model, and can be mounted on the wall via small screw holes in the base (the fan "head" can be tilted 45 degrees to the base). While the fan looks amazing on a table or mantle, it looks absolutely incredible mounted to a wall - especially if you want a stunning conversation piece. Really, who has a vintage fan mounted on a wall?!
The fan stands 22 " high, and is 18" across.
The fan is a 3 speed model (high - medium - low), and it works (and oscillates) beautifully on all speeds and is quiet. If you want a fan that you can be proud to show in your home, and works like the day it was made, this fan fits that critieria.
The fan is in excellent vintage condition. The original paint is in excellent condition, with some minor paint loss on the back motor housing. The original (?) cloth covered cord is in excellent condition, and even felt on the bottom of the base (to protect surfaces on which the fan sits) is in great condition.
This is a fan you can plug in and enjoy immediately!
