G'day Danny.My guess is an adaptation of a lamp and added a motor and a fan blade and not a designated fan design. I have no idea off the manufacturer or the motor, but I dare say someone here will have an idea.All the best Jim

G'day to you, Jim!

At first glance, I thought the same.


Then I noticed how well the trunnion
fits the motor, both span and vertical
depth.  Perfect spacing.


The bosses on the motor to which
the trunnion connects look to be
integral to the motor housing, i.e. not
a stack of washers.  Black paint on
both also looks to be seamless.










p.s.  So, Jim, hope you can make it to
         Seppoland next year to attend
         FanFair!

Thank you very much for your help. Yes, I bought this item at the Gypsy flea market outside Budapest. there was another seller with the same fan, but much expensive, so being two equal items, It makes me think that this is not an adaptation, but a serial production item.
Again I appreciate your help.:tumbs

This was bought up in Michigan over the weekend. No sure how it landed on these shores. Liked the base. One speed push button switch. Cast iron. Nickel plate. Stuff did and does get around...

The first picture looks like it has a place to hang it on a wall.  If the motor can pivot without the back hitting the bracket, I would cast my vote for original.  My vote plus $1 will get you a Coke at McDonalds too.

I'd bet the first fan in this post is an amalgamation. No way you'd put a nickeled blade on a brass base like that. Both are EKA'S. My serial number is much lower too. But. You never know until literature shows up so there ain't no way to settle it.

Key-hole wall mount would require the fan be able to be spun left/right or it would be pointing to the upper right.  Are you able to point the fan opposite of the key-hole hanger tab?

That base belongs on a gimbal lamp...made for wall mounting on ships. They are reproduced in Turkey. Original ones can still be found in England.
