1913-25c. General Electric Company of Schenectady, N.Y., U.S.A., 52" Antique Ceiling Fan, New Gloss Black Standard Finish and Copper Oxide with 6” Light Fitter
This was General Electric's standard ceiling fan for many years and for good reason. It was a thoroughly reliable and efficient machine that offered unique styling to boot. This model evolved from an earlier design introduced in 1909, with the only noticeable difference between this version and its predecessor being that of the oil cup styling. An unusual feature found on this fan is the domed brass or steel canopy on the top of the motor that originally concealed the fan's speed coil. General Electric's double canopy design offers a unique styling feature not offered on most antique ceiling fans.
Although this model has a 52" span, do not let this fool you into believing that it does not move a ton of air. This model features 14 degree pitched brackets, a very powerful motor and wide blades.
The featured fan was restored in our standard gloss black finish with a custom blend of stains to create the dark finished used on the original blades.
