If you open the book link below you will find the Excelsior exhibit on the left page. Copy & paste the link into your search engine and hit enter.  Use the tool feature on the bottom right to single the page, and then use the enlarging feature to see the fan motors in the exhibit. There are other electrical exhibits in the book that have fan motors.

Would it be great to walk through there? I think I’ve heard an Excelsior table fan.

Hey Mike, 

Should be. Notice it appears the laminations in the image have a cover with detailing, as does the base. Also notice the monster brass blade desk fan behind the desk fans up front. The large motor for that desk fan appears to be similar to the column CF motors.

I found an ad for Excelsior dated 1899. It shows offices in New York and Philadelphia. The ad shows no fans, but big Dynamos. They state they use the “Hochausen Dystem”.

Shazam! I checked again. This may be the same photo Mike Petree had. I don't recall when or where this image was made.

Article refers to the dynamo as a C&C. Wrongo bucko. That is a Hochausen patent 1880s Excelsior dynamo that was still being used for electroplating from 89 until 18. Could still be somewhere in NY on someone's shelf. :D
