Came across this the other day. Starts and runs on all 3 speeds. It has a brass blade and steel cage. Can’t find any info on this particular model. Is it worth doing a full resto? I’d like to resell if there is any interest.

The cage badge (and probably the cage too) is from 1928 at the earliest being it has not "dots" on the badge.   A restoration may be worth it if you don't pay yourself for the labor.   Not a collector fan but a good workhorse.  Restoring for resale on that fan would likely lose you money.

Thanks Steve. I do my own restorations so the cost is cheap. I may keep it for a daily runner unless someone makes me an offer I can’t refuse.

The fan itself is much older than the cage; probably circa 1916 as it is two star.

Steve here are the particulars:Form T1

If the cage is from a latter model do you have a picture of an original cage?

Dustin, here is an original finish fan that is probably a Form T from 1917-18.   It's a 12" fan but the cage and badges have the same construction.  Your cage would have been a WRAPPED cage and the cage badge has the dots on the front like all GE up to 1928 when the dots went away and the badge background was smooth.

Thank you Steve. I happen to have the older cage badge. I may use it on this fan and no one will be the wiser. i won’t tell if you won’t.
