Hey all !
Completed our restoration of a Emerson Sea-Breeze Type 3250
Fan was completely disassembled, cleaned, gear box grease, new oil pads for bushings.
I wanted this fan to be white and gold, so I painted a nice polar white with gold trim, gold pin stripes, and polished brass oscillator parts.
I used burnt copper color wire from Antique Wire and a nice white old fashioned plug to pull together the white color scheme.
The blade is aluminum and painted metallic gold.
I used Rustoleum metallic look for the blades. It does not have the mirror-like sheen of polished brass but its not bad.

What a great looking fan.  Nice pin stripe work.  I like the color combination with the white and gold along with the wire and plug colors.  Bet you enjoyed doing this one.Rusty

Thanks Rusty !
Yes this was a fun one. The stator comes out easy peazy, the gear box is dirt simple, and there is no speed coil wiring to puzzle out.

Very nice! Like the gold and white a lot!

The base on these is just adorable.
