# B-124  Century 9" S1 Model 16, c.1918, Brass Blade and Cage Fan.
This smallest Century fan is a somewhat rare model and one of the few small Century fans with a stamped steel motor and base.   This fan runs smoothly on all three speeds and oscillates well.  From an old time collection, this is the nicest one I have seen with a near perfect blade that still has its bright original "dipped and lacquered" finish with visible brush strokes from the application of the lacquer.  The cage has some tarnished areas but there are no bends, breaks, or repairs.  The original headwire is serviceable with some wear at the motor.  The newer power cord is in excellent condition.
Approximate dimensions are 13" tall, 10" wide, 7-1/4" deep, 9-3/8" blade diameter,  weight 10 pounds.   Motor tag is marked Frame S3, Model 16, No. 46541, Volts 110, Cycles 60

#303  GE 16" Type AOU oscillator, Cat. No. 75425, Form AC, 1923, brass blade, steel cage, 110 volts, 60 cycles.   A 100% original fan in very good working and cosmetic condition.  Original dark green paint, original power and head cords and plug, original felt on base.   The three speeds have good speed separation.  Oscillation is very smooth and even.   The plug has a small chip and there is some vibration when running.  Cast iron motor and base with no cracks or chips.  Blade is straight with original lacquer finish.  Oil cup has a new felt wick.    $175 + shipping

#283  GE 16" Type AOU oscillator, Cat. No. 75425, Form V, 1920, brass blade and BRASS CAGE factory painted dark green, 110 volts, 60 cycles.  Very original dark green fan with a brass cage when GE was using the last of the wrapped steel cages.  Maybe they were using up older brass cages but this cage is all non-magnetic and with the original factory paint.  Runs good and oscillates on all three speeds but seems a little down on power.   Note; the oil cup under the front bearing is missing.   It is a standard GE brass oil cup with spring loaded felt wick that should not be too hard to find (antiquefanparts.com)  Original head wire has some fraying.  Power cord is an older replacement.   Cast iron motor and base have no cracks or chips.   $175 + shipping

#72 SOLD  Emerson Type 24648 c.1918,  Brass Blade and Cage Fan.   This one is a super nice and all original Emerson 16" oscillator with cast iron blade hub and the original ball detent oscillator disc.  The blade wings are perfect and the fan runs quite smoothly.   The cage is perfect with the very domed badge that was unique of the 24xxx types.  Excellent original headwire from base to motor with no frays or tape.   The black Japan finish is excellent and original and has not been rubbed out.  This is about as nice of an original Emerson as you will find.   $450 + shipping
