Lacrosse is one hour south of me.  Vought Berger Co. was yet another early Lacrosse electrical manufacturer.

Excerpt from above:

   "This device operates
from the electric current.
             No battery"


Interesting.

I'd assume 110 Volts or so,
direct current.

I'd also assume the fan and
the incandescent light bulb
are connected in series.









A bipolar permanent magnet motor
operating on alternating current...

I doubt it!

The incandescent bulb wouldn't
give a rat's rear end, AC or DC.

That’s Manhattan #1 fan. Not sure a bulb resistance would work to reduce a battery fan from household voltage.

Notice the 02 advertisement states for direct current only. It also doesn't specify the power voltage or source.

One more thing, no one knows what fan motor was under that lamp for sure. Fact Jack.

The Manhattan No. 1 Fan I just worked on is unlikely to be able to run on AC voltage of any sort. I was hesitant to hook it up to a a full 6 volts due to the fact that the armature windings has so low of ohms, something right around 1 ohm. With no resistance to speak of, a couple of unwanted volts could fry the windings with only a couple of amps.
It was designed to run on 3 wet cells of the period. That would give a maximum of 6 volts with a fresh battery. Not sure of the amp rating of those, but I assume they weren't all that powerful.
How this rig would produce any light or wind simultaneously is a puzzle to me. Oh, well, for a fiver, it's worth a shot, I guess.
Cheers,
Bill
