I have not found a fan in the wild since I bought my first fans which ultimately led me to this website and AFCA.



Was out this weekend at a local 'antique mall' and found the following:

12" GE AOU Form ADI, 16" GE AOU Form ADI and Westinghouse Stamped Steel with steel cage and 6 wing Blades- uncertain of the serial number or micro date the tag is very corroded. Do wonder if the blade or cage is correct?







I know all fans in Indiana belong to George but I just could not resist. :D I mean technically is Evansville really part of Indiana?  I did leave some for anyone else: there was a Victor with an updated paint job, A Graybar, a 79xxx series 16" Emerson in very good shape, a very nice Eskimo and a nice Hassock fan. I have been to this place many times in the past and have NEVER seen any fans.

Greg, I also Recently Found a 16" GE AOU at a local antique shop near me, mine was a Form AF2 which dates to  roughly 1929 and mine has a brass blade assembly and steel cage, according to my research on here (aka Russ Huber) 1929 was the last year for brass bladed fans from GE, so my fan is actually quite a valuable fan (not money valuable) in that it was one of the last Brass Bladed GE Fans ever made, so its a worthwhile piece to preserve, also it will be my first true fan restoration job because the fan had some serious water damage to the base and so I've been trying to get the rust cleaned off of the base and then come spring when its warmer out I will be repainting the fan to John Deere Green in memory of my Grandfather who died in 2012 of Leukemia and who was a John Deere Afficiando/Collector.

Levi- that is cool about being one of the last brass bladed 16” AOU’s. The one above (based on searching here) has aluminum blades. That will be a nice tribute to your grandfather. Post pictures when you are finished.Greg
