Crucet fans are very scarce. I think the housings are made of compressed horsehair.

Yes, and painted plaster, what a rip-off! Great looking fans/concept though!

Me too, Tony, I never saw one, at least not here in Maryland. I'm guessing they did not have a high survivability rate due to their construction, that pedestal they are on falls over and CRUNCH! Out to the garage it goes, to be replaced by another...

I always wanted a Crucet lamp. Love those old style shallow shades with the fringe.

A Crucet base and cage comparable to the Crucet "Adam" seen in post 2 of this thread. The little typewritten note attributes this fan to have belonged to Henry Ford. The fan and blades are R&M/Western Electric, and likely a replacement for the Westinghouse fan that would have originally been installed - Whitfield Image Archive
