Tag.....This is the only Emerson on display in the museum. The rest have been moved to the basement, to make room for the more important fans to be shown....Like Eskimos and Zeros and such.....

Thanks for taking the time for the window into the museum, Kim. Never been there done that at the museum, maybe some day.

I am going to "TRY" to refrain from anymore fan history posts and let the pictures speak for themselves. :D 

The imagination and evolution of these machines is most fascinating. If you have the ability and privilege to restore them from the inside out, what a treat. For those that wish to venture into Google books to the Electrical trade journals there is so much to learn.

Russ, if you wish to, please post any information and history that you have for these fans. It is a valuable resource and adds considerably to the pictures....

That Westinghouse is called a Crucet. The shell was paper mâché, I think. There are few known.

Crucet Mfg. Co. ornamental fans are shown in electrical trade journal as early as 15. Crucet used Westinghouse and Diehl fan motors. The fan motors were marketed in ornamental wicker as well.

It appears Emerson went to the chain hung styling in 16. Strange as it may seem those smaller blade span 6 wing Emerson CFs were favored for entry ways for pest(insect) control.:D

Beautiful Peerless has some Emerson and Tesla characteristics. Surprised to see a stamped hub on such an early fan.

Both Peerless and Dayton made similar fans. For some reason they could not use Hassler's Patent for self-starting fans. The Peerless was referred to as the Kick Start. It Had a ratchet mechanism like a kick start Motorcycle. The Dayton was the Spin Start. The Dayton was powered up. A big brass disc on the back of the fan was attached to the shaft. Once powered, you would spin the disc to get the fan to start. They were only made until Hassler's Patent expired. Very nice fans.

Peerless Electric Co. of Warren, Ohio incorporated as a separate business from Warren Electric & Specialty Co. in 1902. The following year in the 1903 fan motor season Peerless introduced their first alternating current induction fan motor with a unique starting mechanism. I see this same fan motor offered for the 04 season. In the 05 Peerless/Colonial fan motor season their first wind driven oscillator was introduced for direct current. I can find NO mention of an alternating current fan motor in the Peerless/Colonial line of desk fans for 05...yet

I've always loved this one, the Crucet!  The tag read  " Fancy, Victorian plaster and horsehair cased Westinghouse oscillating fans, very rare, circa 1916.  The unusual composition of this fan allowed Westinghouse to create a very unique design. There are only 2 of these models known to exist. "  Kurt House
