Bought this one at Marketplace for $250 asking $300. Most of you would probably say I payed to much for it but it runs and oscillates smoothly on three distinct speeds which is a big plus. By the pictures I thought it was a larger fan and didn't realize it until I picked it up that it was an  oscillator. But I like it takes up less space. It has an aluminum blade and steel cage. Does anyone know what the color scheme would be? And the circa 1949-50 ?  I just wonder how many people had been electrocuted from this fan by having the switch at the bottom of the base? Just have to remember to unplug it when not in use. Haha

Hi Vic. Seems like a fair price to me though I don't know for sure since I don't collect these fans. I don't understand why the switch in the base would increase the risk of electrocution. I'd be interested to see the restoration as it proceeds once you figure out the color scheme.

The motor housing and base  might have been a bronze color originally . I'll probably see the color when I take it a part.

Curious.....why would people get electrocuted because the switch is in the base?

Adding to what I mentioned above, walking barefoot on a wet floor with the fan plugged in. Just saying. Haha

You did well, Vic! Those pedestal Emersons are highly desirable!
I want to find one of those bases though. I want to stick my 21648 assembly on top. Haha

It should have a cover plate, if I'm not mistaken.
The Seabreeze Pedestal that has a ridiculously heavy and large base(for just a 12" fan) has a cover on the electrical end.
 There is a cushiony liner between the metal cover and the switch assembly.





Idea of base size!

The paint is Duplicolor Rim Bronze. Used it on that fan in case my dog scratched at it. Extremely durable paint!

Duplicolor Rim Bronze on Amazon

I used oil rubbed metallic bronze on the cage as well. This is just a 10" bronze blade 6250-AF, so not sure what you'd do with the blade color. I'm sure you'll figure it out!





The original color was similar to rim bronze.
Before resto.
