1915-25c. General Electric Company of Schenectady, N.Y., U.S.A., 52" Antique Ceiling Fan
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.
The featured fan was restored in gloss black for a repeat client's historic Madison,Connecticut beach home.
