This Sprague model more than likely has a 2 year span of manufacture of 17-18. 1919 represented change in the Sprague fan motors to the GE 2 Star styling.  By 1921 Sprague had discontinued fan motor manufacture.

Russ, the fan in the 1909 ad has a 13 s wire guard yet the 1907-1908 has 9 s wires. I thought the 13 S Wire guards where used on their older fans?

The 12" 09 model had a open ring 9 wire ROUND guard. The 09 16" model sported the open ring 13 wire guard with flat wire at the bottom. That 16" guard would be a unique 1 year run.

The Lundell DC fan motor design must of been the Cadillac of DC fan motors back then. Think about it, manufactured 1892-1918(19?).

So Lundell only made the 13 wire cage for one year? Interesting. I love the multi S Wire single ring cages like Lundell and Peerless made.

If you find this 16" Sprague Lundell with open ring guard compatible for the 09 introduced oscillator, it dates 09 exclusively.

I thought I remembered something about this. It would appear at least in 1906 as well a model had the 13 wire cage.Maybe 13 wires was just a 16 in thing?

1906 and retro Lundell did not have the 09 flat rear guard ring at the bottom. The fan motor is credited to Jim Dunn.

Ah, ok, I get what you mean. I was referring only to the number of wires, not the rear ring. Sorry for the misunderstanding!
