1909-24 Westinghouse 56" Antique Ceiling Fan Fully Restored, Gloss “Gatsby” White Finish, Matching Satin Finish Blades.

1909-24c. Westinghouse Electric & Manufacturing Co., Pittsburgh, PA., U.S.A. 56" Antique Ceiling Fan, Fully Restored, Gloss “Gatsby” White Finish, Matching Satin Finish Blades

This model enjoyed a relatively long life in the Westinghouse line up. Early versions of this fan were manufactured in Pittsburgh when they spelled it Pittsburg. Westinghouse originally offered this model in two finishes. The standard being a black japan enameled finish and the optional molted copper oxide finish.

The unconventional movement (the entire center section of the motor revolves) of this model creates a unique atmosphere and allows this model to be installed on lower ceilings.

Period company literature proclaims " The Westinghouse ceiling fans have proved a very great success owing to their effectiveness as well as to their ornamental design. These fans are very economical to operate, requiring only about the same current as two standard incandescent lamps."

Our featured Westinghouse 56" antique ceiling fan was one of pair restored for a showcase retail store by a famous name brand of apparel. We built the fans to their specifications, which included the 1920s “Gatsby” style sanitary look that showcases the Westinghouse ceiling fan’s clean lines. Unlike conventional fans on the market, this antique Westinghouse is one that F. Scott Fitzgerald could have employed in his own home.
