I'm not sure if I've really taken the time to read this one before... We find:

1. Crescent or now Pennsylvania fan from Marietta.

2. The Paragon black motor I was aware of but......with an iron guard.  Any earlier references to a fan without a brass guard?

3. We can see in black and white what we pretty much knew.  Fidelity the successor to George Towle.

Marietta Mfg. Co had the Crescent line of fan motors up until the 01 season. Pennsylvania Electric Co.(Marietta) took over the Crescent line of fans in 02. They were still marketing Crescent desk and ceiling fans in the 09 season. 1894 until at least 09 direct current fan motors only....amazing. Even D. L. Bates had some AC fan motors in their product line at one time or another.

By the way...H. Burd Cassel and another prominent sucked Crescent fans out of Lancaster in 95, and over to Marietta. Cassel had his fingers in the pie in both Pennsylvania and Marietta Mfg. Co. Pennsylvania Electric Co. was well respected in the telephone manufacturing business late 19th.

What I really liked is that Crescent matched the one I have in this unidentified dc fan catalogue. Under the ceiling fan section they make a point to stress that they are the only ones to have the basic patent to an electric ceiling fan. Not sure what that meant........or what they were trying to claim

Loren, interesting stuff, indeed.

Thumbing through the magazine, I finally came across the ad I've been long looking for, the FWEW revolving fan motor installed in the dragon and snake lamp. Any of these dragons known?

Lots of great fan ads and articles in that Google book. 

Thanks Loren, for posting.

Remember what happened in 1900? Crescents CF claim got challenged. :D

Wonder what changes came about as a result of their litigation with Diehl?

Jim, for what it's worth, I guess they referred to it as a croquet ball motor.. "History of GE at Fort Wayne" by Clovis Linkhous. The tongue of the dragon was painted red. The late Guinn Rigsby had one of those I believe.
