So recently I got a couple of new old fans. One of these is a fan I've been on the hunt for, the other was an impulse buy.

Fan #1 is one of the fans I've been looking for - a 12" Jack Frost oscillator. The model is 3-507 and this particular fan is the aqua blue model, the paint is in good shape under the dirt, but the bearings are gummed up and the wiring / switch need attention. I'll be getting the hammered bronze model from a fellow collector soon as well.








-------------------



Fan #2 was an impulse buy at the Long Beach swap meet - it's an 8" Westinghouse Riviera. This is a nice, quiet little fan with 2 speeds, deep pitch blades and a 4 pole motor.

Nice finds Duane. I saw that Riviera there but didn't get it.

I have 2 of the 8" rivieras they are great fans, plus a 10"  and they do much more than any fan their size. God find!
