For sale are 3 completely restored GE Brass Bell fans.  All 3 have been restored with identical materials and work. I had hoped to have these ready for the holidays but family obligations delayed them a little bit. 

All of them run as they should and look great. They’ve been completely disassembled and every part cleaned and painted or polished. All brass hardware was clear coated. Switches cleaned and reconditioned. New headwires, plugs, power cords, wicks, base felt, etc.  Blades are original and have been polished. All castings have been bead blasted, primed and painted with matching paint.  They’re ready to run . 


Once again, the last one I offered sold in a very short time, and several members reached out too late.  That’s why I restored 3 this time.  Hopefully everyone that wants one can get it.  


Since there are 3 of them, I’ll number them as follows. When you PM me, please mention the number so I know which you have interest in. I will carefully pack them so they arrive safely. 

#1- 12” 220v tag (runs on 110- see description on posting). SOLD
#2- 16” this is a standard 110v fan- SOLD 
#3- 16” with Philadelphia Electric tag - also standard 110v fan - AVAILABLE

Enjoy the pics. Please PM me if interested.  Payment via PayPal friends. 

Fans are $300 each plus shipping.   

Thanks for looking! 

Fan #1- 12” The 12” fan is now sold! #3 still available. This fan has a less common 220v tag, but in comparing the stator readings, etc, I believe it was changed to a 110v coil at some point in its past.  Makes sense because I bought this from an old gentleman who used this in his antique shop every day.  I didn’t even see the 220v tag until I started cleaning it . It runs very happily with normal amp readings at 120v and cool as a cucumber.

Having owned many fans Lane has done, let me say they have all run flawlessly. You won't be disapointed.

Hey Lane, Don't you need 4 blades the same size? seems to me that 2 16" and one 12" blade would be a tad wobbly........

Seriously, Nice work. How's the move going?
