1917-18c. Emerson 12" Residential
3 Speed Oscillating Desk Fan

1917-18c. Emerson Electric Company of St. Louis, MO., U.S.A., 12" Residential 3 Speed Oscillating Desk Fan

The Emerson Electric Company produced some of the most superb desk fans ever manufactured. This model is an example of the premium engineering that allowed them to become a well respected leader among fan manufacturers. The Emerson residential oscillators were marketed specifically as the premium level quiet fan of its day. It's slower 6 pole winding allowed the six solid brass blades to move air more quietly than the four blade varieties using the faster 4 pole winding. As with many of their fans, the type24666 has an outstanding design that allows the owner to place a few drops of oil in one oil port every three months or so. This feature provides the owner with a minimum amount of required maintenance and will insure the fan will have a long life. The last version of the residential models sported a guard logo that sums it up best in three words " Built to Last".

The fan shown in this gallery was restored for a historic Florida home and it featured a new premium automotive finish.

Some of the Features of the Emerson Type 24666 are:

Dimensions-12" Blade Diameter
