Got this delivered to my work for $80. Needed a little spin to get going but
works great will need a new cord. Any idea when this was made?

There is a patent for it in the 40s.  The hassock fans started becoming very popular in the 40s. Set it in the middle of the living room and circulate the cigarette/cigar/pipe smoke evenly around the room.  :D


Psssssssssst...sucks cooler air from floor level and directs it 360 degrees. Or, that was the game plan.

Yeah, I have some other hassock fans, later models. I didn't think this one was that early. I like it.

You can fix the wood finish on your fan's cabinet without having to refinish it, just use Howard's Restor-A-Finish on it and then follow up using Howard's Wax-n-Feed, and it will look as good as new.

Thanks for the tip Levi. They even have it locally. I was kinda on the fence getting this thing, I got him to come down $20 because of the blemishes. I was also thinking I can get a piece of tinted glass for the top, which I will probably do regardless so I don't spill beer on it!

Very Good Richard, I myself can testify to the wonders of Howard's Restor-a-Finish, as I just used it on my 1950s vintage Kitchen table which is made of Walnut and the top on it was in horendous shape as it had lots of fading on the finish and heat marks from coffee mugs being sat on it over the years, and scratches etc. and now it looks as good as new. I wish I would of taken some before and after photos of the table.
Anyways if you do decide to get that fan and decide to use Howard's Restor-a-Finish on it make sure to ge the Mahogany colored bottle as that fan's cabinet is Mahogany.

OK Good, you'll want to go to your local Ace Hardware as that's the only place I've Found that carries the Howard's Restor-a-Finish, and Wax-n-Feed products as Lowe's, and Menards (not sure about Home Depot as I've never been to one before) doesn't carry their products.
