Looking for some info from the Pros on here. I recently acquired a couple of fans I’m trying to get some information on. I will post them in separate posts so as to minimize confusion when discussing two separate fans.


For this fan, it is a brass blade Western Electric desk fan. The housing has been broken off at some time and is missing. I have machine shop capabilities and feel confident I can make a new one but would like something to base it from. I see numerous designs but can’t find anything definitive for my exact fan.
Information requested:


1. Is it possible to tell what year this is?


2. Does anyone have pics of the housing would be used for this fan? Would also appreciate pics of the brush holders.  


3.  Any particulars to be aware of while doing a restoration of this particular fan?
