Looking for feedback on this Emerson Tripod that I recently purchased.  It is not branded "Meston", rather the fan front side has "Emerson Induction Motor" in the casting.  Tripod does not have a grill.  Some blades are bent, but not creased. Blade hub/fingers are in tact. Blades freely move manually, but slowly.  Has not been powered up.  Questions:
1. Is this fan rare to find?  
2. Are they commonly found restored?
3. Estimated range for its worth "as is" ?  
4. Approximate market value fully restored?
5. Sources for getting this type of fan restored

Thanks everyone for any and all feedback!

From Ron Jeter’s survey in the info section, your serial number falls between the two circled in green. Mfg 1895 - 1900.  I can’t answer any of your questions. Post your questions and pics on the “Pre-1950” forum; you’re sure to get answers from some very knowledgeable members.
