1936-37c. Hunter Fan and Motor Company, Fulton, N.Y., U.S.A., Type 36 Antique Ceiling Fan.
One of the models that was instrumental in Hunters rise and reputation as a leader among ceiling fan manufacturers is undoubtedly the Type 36. A similar version of this model was introduced in the early 1920s as a 32" fan and established a long production run to follow.
Hunter continued to build this model in similar form after moving the headquarters and factory to Memphis, Tennessee in the mid 1940s. This model is basically a smaller version of the famous 52" Hunter ceiling fan and it was manufactured with the same standards and quality.
The Hunter Type 36 shown in this gallery was restored for a historic South Texas home. The finish is Cream white gloss on the motor housing and blades.
