So I have been lucky enough to find some nice ones lately, but haven't had much time to address them.  I snagged this one a few weeks ago and I had planned to wait until I had it cleaned up to post pictures, but I just couldn't stand it.  This is "as found" with the exception of wiped down with a wet cloth and I used a can of compressed air to blow the dust off of the exposed stator windings.  It honestly has about the best paint I have ever seen on a 100 year old fan.  It clearly came from a loving home and you can see where it has been polished over the years, but once I give it a good disassembly and cleaning it should be spectacular.   Also works well on all 5 speeds but I have only ran it briefly because I haven't even had time to pull the cups and see what the wicks look like.  The Fluke meter said she was good to plug in so I did.  Best off all none of the screw heads look like they have ever met a screwdriver!
As a side note this should fulfill the Skeletal "hole in my soul" for a while so once I get a chance I will be listing my 16" Skeletal for sale one the board.

Probably the cleanest Century I have seen and they usually have led a hard and dirty life.  Great score.
