Why is this stuff not in a more permanent place on the forum???  Don’t mean to open up that debate, but just sayin’ . I hope our new webmaster at least bookmarks this post as one that should be permanently available in a place that doesn’t involve major searching.

There already is a good place for information of this type under our "Catalogs and Advertisements" page and GE within that page:

The 1901 Catalog shows a 1900 fan (wrapped cage, no holes in base) Using older art work? Later catalogs still use the old artwork (cut-a-way view) The covers are great!Still would like to see original fans in optional colors!!

This is from a different source, the University of Chicago Library, and will provide the missing 1904 catalog.....

GE seems to have been content using the previous year's fan illustrations as they have done in this 1904 catalog.  Great catalog info but don't date from the illustrations.

Wow I didn't realize that the 1904 pancake was available in different colors  other then black. I have a 04 pancake waiting in the wings to be restored.. I'm thinking of doing it in a royal blue. Great link Steve S.

Let there be proof.    I have every reason to believe that this is an original "white and gold" pancake from 1906.
Another member has a similar GE kidney in white and gold original looking paint.    Here's a great example of how it must have been pinstriped in gold.
