Friends:  This is another fan that my daughters bought for me for father's day. It cleaned up nicely and runs very quietly and smoothly. The tag on the inside of the bottom says Knapp Monarch. It seems to be in the style of the 1940's time period. Please comment. Here it is before restoration.


And after a little bit of work.

Mid to late 1940's.

Thank you kindly. Daughter did mention that she thought it was a Jack Frost (though the lettering on the rectangular badge is worn off).

I had to take this fan completely apart because the oscillation was skipping quite a bit. Turns out that the vertical gear that the worm gear turns is very worn and in need of replacing. It's a pity. I'll have to be satisfied with it as a stationary fan.

Great looking fan. I just finished cleaning one up like it. It was probably in one of the worst states I've seen. The motor housing was packed full of mud dabber nests. Not an easy fan to disassemble!

P.S. - What do you use to keep the wrinkle finish on your fan conditioned?
