It appears Galvin introduced the 10" stationary AC desk fan exclusively for the 1924 fan motor season. It appears 1925 Galvin introduced the oscillating models in 3 flavors 10" and 14" models.

Anyone own one of the 14"  AC or DC oscillating models with the oscillating gearbox seen in the image below
?  Could you please post pictures?

Hi Russ,
Just looking at a 10 inch non-oscillating model.  It is an AF-10, also series 52.
Alternating current only with the single speed toggle switch in the base and all data on the cage badge.

I have yet to see a Galvin 14" oscillating DC manufactured prior to Emerson taking them to court for patent infringement.

1922 electrical trade supports Galvin involved in radio & phonograph equipment manufacture. The early 20s was a huge boom in radio. Signal jumped on that band wagon as well. Radio probably kept Signal from going under after old man Tideman took off with most of the machinery and employees to Cairo, IL.
