I am new to restoring fans and don't know if there is documentation or information in people's heads about matching paint color.  We any of these standardized within a manufacturer?  The current paint is a bronze and appears to be original so I am attaching some pics.  This is a GE FM12 M1.  I don't know how old it is, I know that would help.  Anything you all can offer is appreciated.
Bill

Thanks Allen!Just ordered the paint. Also, thanks for the picture. So, this fan is about a 1939? Do you have a similar fan?

Wow, that's a really beautiful Vorty - it looks so classy. I never was interested in pedestal fans but that one is definitely now on my list. Wonderful job!!

Thanks for the kind words!  
Fan Blade: Rustoleum Navajo Beige   Fan Cage: Rustoleum Dark Satin Walnut




I restored the fan for a customer who said it belonged to her father.  It had been sitting in an outside shed for 20+ years, so you can imagine the mess it was in.  That particular fan is on my bucket list too.  I like the 5 x 3 cage and it has two oil cups, unlike the newer Vortys with just one.
