Yeah, That's what I said, "Antique Electric Fans". Being that they were around in the late 1890's makes them antique, in fact before electricity there were Water powered fans, desk top and ceiling. Anyway, was just wondering if we had any collectors of them here being I use to collect and restore them, still have about a dozen of the dad burn things hang'en around yet too. Let me know. Wink

I've got an oldie on the cellar workbench that I've been meaning to get to fixin' but it hasn't been a priority. I really like the ones with the old brass blades. A collector I am not but I love old stuff, cause I'm old!!!
lol!

What I really get a kick out of, is when someone will call something an antique when it's something from my own time era. I tell them, if it aint older then me it aint a antique yet.

What brand and size fan ya got Doc? Would love to see it. It's older then me isn't it! Suspect
Here's one I restored customized awhile back.....it's younger then you both of us. Any Antique Electric Fan Collectors Here? Chees106

No problem. That's why I get the big bucks.

I probably shouldn't tell you, but about 15 years ago my friend bought a 55 Chevy nomad to restore. It had probably 20 old fans stuffed in the back,,,which we took to the dump. They were pay fans. You had to insert a nickel in the slot on the back to turn them on. We had no idea anyone collected old fans.

Those are cool. So where did they use coin-operated fans? A bordello?
