1920s Diehl 52" Antique Ceiling Fan

1920s Diehl Manufacturing Company, Elizabethport, N.J., U.S.A. 52" Antique Ceiling Fan

The Diehl Manufacturing Company ushered in the modern age of the "roaring 20s" with this attractive 52" ceiling fan leading their product line. Diehl's introduction of this model was a step towards smoother lines and less ornamentation that had been the norm a mere decade prior.

Company literature advertised this fan as "light in weight, attractive in appearance, quiet in operation and efficient in current consumption". Though this model was 20s modern, Diehl still believed in offering an outstanding product by incorporating a hardened steel shaft in this model's design.

The fan pictured in this gallery is one of a pair that was restored for a client's Nebraskan log home. The finish is flat black and golden oak.

Some of the features of this model are:

  • Dimensions- 8" Length x 11" diameter
  • Cast Iron Frame with Stamped Steel Motor Housing cover for lighter weight.
  • Oil Bath Lubrication System Continuously Bathes The Motor Shaft in a Curtain of Oil.
  • Thrust Bearing Design is Immersed in Oil at All Times.
  • Smooth Clean Design.
  • Lighter in Weight.
  • Solid State Speed Control allows for a Variety of Speeds.
