Mike, you did a deal of the century. That is Emerson's first oscillator. The 12" version is quite uncommon. I've never seen the 16" one. Very rare I would say. What a beauty. You know what I'd do to it...
Preserve, preserve, preserve.
Enjoy YOUR fan.

thanks very much Steve, it looks like its missing a strut, and the oscillating part in back looks to be missing a bolt or maybe has a broken part. I can always count on you knowing a ton about fans

Adam, It doesnt have a power cord, although the headwire looks ok. The blades turn but definately need some oiling. I never usually find anything in this antique mall cause everything is way overpriced. Someone did have a nice old Diehl oscillator for like $124, looks to be from the early 20's...and a TINY little GE F series fan but they wanted a whopping $150 for that. Its smaller than a Polar cub from the looks of it.

Mike you done good.....can't believe a club member asked if it runs.."IT'S AN EMERSON!".  Tell you what I'll do, I'll pay $50 bucks for the fan and pay ship cost then you'll be able to join our great AFCA club.  Get on board, you're hooked now and are one of us.

lol...no Russ, no one was in the booth, and it was sort of hidden in the back. I did get a $10 discount on it.

I recently purchased an Emerson 2220 16" version.  It was in very rough shape for $40.  I noticed the oscillator was different from any Emerson version I had. I've inserted some pics below.  The fan does run, but it appears to be missing the speed coil. Lots of cleaning required to get all the dirt dobber and spider webs out.  I would be interested in trying to purchase or obtain a replacement speed coil so I can get it going on all three speeds.  Also, trying to get some information on value as it seems rare.

It's not missing the speed coil, I believe it's a single speed fan.

Nice fan, I bought one off eBay earlier this year.  It cost me 10 times what you paid though.  They definately aren't too common.

Thanks for all the responses.  I've inserted some pics of the switch (top and bottom).  It may be a single speed but looking at the top of the switch I thought it might be missing the speed coil.  Below is the top of the switch. 



Bottom of switch.

Nope, that's a single speed switch, its very common for them to to bridge together 2 contacts to make one contact.

Levi/Steve, thanks for getting back and confirming this model didn't have a speed coil. 

One last question, it seems that the blades on this fan are not the original blades.  Does anyone have a pic and/or were they brass or steel? 

I appreciate the feedback.

Originally they were brass with a cast iron hub holding them together.  You are going to be hard pressed to find the right blade set for that fan.  Just thinking about seeing if a 16" Emerson DC blade set would work with the stamped steel hub:wondering:   That would be easier to find.
