They look pretty nice. Much better than your typical $200 eBay fan. 
I'm not an expert, but I think those glass shades go for about $30 each, maybe more.

Nice!!!! I am 99.9% sure those are Phil Frey restorations judging by the ornate sideband on the Century. I looked at some of his last restorations when I stopped by his old shop in Oklahoma back in Fall 2014. He had a tendency to add ornate sidebands to his restorations, which I like.

I am 100% certain that Phil restored those fans and that the new owners are totally in the dark about what they're giving up:?..

Agreed Geoff!! But it is the ignorant dummies like these who give us our antiques. I assume he will "upgrade" to something more exotic like Holmes or Harbor Breeze...

A near clone of that century is hanging in Phil's garage right now unless it has been sold in the past month. Seems clear those are "Frey Creations."

The ornate bands, are those something that came original, or were those creations he made for them? Nice looking fans.

They were Phil's creations.   There were still a couple of roles of those bands at his place in OKC a  month or so back.

He did. I have a set in brass already wired and  mounted in the "nose piece" - ready to go that I will be listing sometime next week.

500 would be OK for restored, complete fans.  Complete means switch, speed control, hanger, canopy, blades and irons and of course, working motor with good bearing.

I second Tom's estimate of FMV.  Funny - unless Phil made two of those Centuries, I just located old photos he sent me way back when of that exact fan.  I'm sure he made up more than one though.

I kinda feel bad for the poor sap that left them behind, not sure why they wouldn't have uninstalled them and taken the fans with them? :wondering:

My wife was gone for a few days so I decided to go for a drive and take a look not that I know what I'm looking at or for. They were in the attic or loft of what was originally the carriage house behind a large victorian style house built in 1890 that had been converted to a care home at one time then back to a house but was in poor condition. They had been stored for some time. 
It wasn't easy getting them down, heavy is an understatement!
The story I got was that a Dr had lived there for 38 years and left the fans. Oddly all of the blades were wrapped in OKC newspapers just like I see photos of the way Phil did it and they don't appear to have ever been used. The fan motors were full of dust like they had been hung and used? 
Just what I needed was another project!
