I just finished up on this fan. Circa 1951-54? it was over stamped couldn't tell it were a 1 or 4. AB/SC 3 speed on the base. I painted everything a rustic mist except the blade and upper pole. The aluminum blade was originally painted but I stripped it and wanted to shine it up. I went through all kinds of prosses to get it shiny. It was very corroded  underneath  . It was a pain. I'd rather polish a  brass blade any day then a aluminum one. It runs and oscillates smoothly in 3 distinct speeds.

Looks super!  Fantastic save!  What paint did you use to match the Emerson Bronze Metallic?  I bought some custom Sherwin-Williams automotive in spray cans, and it was close, but it appears yours is a better match.

Looks great :up:Anyone who has ever tried to polish those overlapping blades knows how much effort
 that took.
Did you remove the blades from the hub to polish them?

I liked the color but not the spray nozzle. Not easy to hold on to.

Thanks, yes I did take the blade off. It took hours to get it where I wanted to look. If I were to do it again I'd probably paint it. Haha

Great job! Did you have to clear coat the paint or was it already glossy?
