i have an eskimo 1100-H fan, I looked it up and cannot find an 1100-H. i can find an 1100-R, but not an H. also all of the ones like it seem to have the spider web grill, and this does not. i dont know if it is original or not. ALSO dont know if it is post 1950 or pre 1950.also dont know if it is pre or post 1950

Haha! You just don't see those Fiero's much anymore. I am not sure what the difference between the H and the R is, unless somehow the "H" represents the stationary or fixed "head" fans and the "R" represents the "rotating" or oscillating models (that is a total guess)? Someone on this forum may know what it actually stands for, there are some pretty educated dudes (and gals) on this site.  Anyway, the grill on your fan is incorrect. It should have the cobweb design. In some rarer cases they have the "daisy" cage (which is the cobweb design reversed). Good luck with your project!

i knew the grille on the 1100R is a spiderweb, i think the r is stationary as well, but not 100% i did not know if this grille came off something else or that was what made it an H, it looks perfect and fits perfect. as far as the fiero goes, i got it for 100$ as a project. it is pretty rough but only has 50,000 miles on it.

That style of Eskimo Fan is from the 1940s and the cage that's on your fan came from a 1950s Eskimo fan.

Here you go, 1938-1939 production.  First image: Look at the cage on the 10-inch osc., compare to yours.
                                            8-inch stationary, Model No. 1100-H - 1939 model year

No, I'm sure it was marketed wherever Eskimo brand fans were sold at that time. 1100-J is from 1949, and 1100-R seems to be manufactured from 1950 at least to 1958.

so, it IS the correct cage?, the blades seem to move alot of air, although if you look i think they have been cut at one end on 2 of the blades, i dont know if this is factory for balancing, or someone tried that themself. it seems balanced pretty well though.

It appears it may be the first in the model series, and not likely manufactured in large numbers with the 1100-H model prefix. I'll say that based on current data. Your fan seems consistent with it being all original with original equipment. It likely will not make you rich, as I'm sure there are plenty more out there, most collectors collect by size versus model numbers, and may not have even thought of looking to see what model number they have, but it seems to be a very nice, original example.

i am not worried about money, none of my fans are for sale and i make them to be used not restored. pretty much basic stuff. this fan is in good shape for a bersted which is the only reason i payed 25$ for it. although unlike most people, besides emerson my favorite fans are the bersted fans and my all time favorite is the zero 1250R

i was looking at my picture and it says patent pending, so it probably is an early one.

Wow! Great info Mike. I have never seen an Eskimo with a cage like that. I wonder if that is the case... 1930’s H, 1940’s J, 1950’s R. I’ll be looking for that now. That’s neat!

So, i got home and decided to look at the fan again, and indeed the blade was on backwards and the nut under the cap in the blade hub was the one that is supposed to be behind the blade and the other in the wrong spot as well, i don't know exactly how this happened because i did not have it when it did, but anyway it is working. does not seem to blow too much more air than before. but whoever it was that said they were on backwards you were correct.

my first fan was a zero 1250R, i still have it. when i got it it was extreely loud and you could hear it from outside the house, at that time i was like 3 and did not know about oiling it. but after it ran for about 30 seconds it would stop. i now oil it weekly and it runs fine. i woule never part with it for any price.
