Any tips on restoring the Bronze Jubilee blades? Would you treat them same as the Brass blades?

I start with Brasso and finish with fine steel wool. Brasso leaves kind of a dull polished finish, and the steel wool makes it shiny and reflective. Normally I buff blades, but I'm scared to do the overlapping blades.

If I remember, tomorrow I'll get a photo of a Golden Jubilee I polished recently, so you can see how it looks the way I polished it.

First of all, some are painted aluminum, so be sure you have one of the “bronze” blades.  If it is a bronze one, they have a tinted clearcoat on them that give them the bronze look.  So if you buff it too much, the coating goes away and you’re left with a bright brass blade.  Not bad, but it’ll no longer be bronze.

I've come across a number of bronze Golden Jubilee blades, all of which I'm sure were bronze, not brass. I use paint stripper to get the clear coat off, then I can polish them more easily. If you look at a bronze blade (with the lacquer stripped off) next to a brass blade, you can easily tell the difference. The Emerson catalogs also called them bronze blades; Steve Stevens might have that Emerson catalog page.

I took some pictures of one of my Golden Jubilees. I polished it a few months ago, so it's not quite as bright as it used to be.



It's a little dusty.



The last picture is in the shade.


The finish isn't like a mirror, but it's definitely better than if I hadn't used steel wool after the brasso.

Just for reference, Here's a polished brass blade.





I'm not saying there aren't brass Golden Jubilee blades, because they did use aluminum and select few steel blades, so I wouldn't be that surprised to see brass ones. Do you have a picture of your brass Golden Jubilee blades?

From Emerson catalog No. X3649 for 1940--page 3;

Golden Jubilee Feature Fan

6. Patented Overlapping "Quiet-type" Blades.  Bronze blades with beautiful polished, natural finish.

10. Finished in lustrous oxidized bronze lacquer on motor, base, and guard---blades, highly polished natural bronze.

Also; "From its many mechanical features to the gleaming polished bronze alloy blades (Jewelers' Metal) it is a Golden Jubilee Value that will be long remembered."

NO brass, aluminum, or steel blades were used in the original model.

Thanks Mr. Hoehn. The aluminum blades on the later Golden Jubilees (early 50's) are original right?
This steel bladed one sold on eBay recentlyhttps://www.ebay.com/itm/Vintage-Emerson-6250-K-Oscillating-Electric-Fan-17-034-SEE-DETAILS-BELOW
