1902 General Electric Company, U.S.A., 12" Antique Desk Fan
At the turn of the 20th Century, General Electric manufactured one of the most beautiful desk fans to ever grace their lineup. A similar version of this model was first introduced in 1894 and it was continuously modified to the form shown here in 1901. General Electric continued to slightly redesign the aesthetics of the model and by 1903 had added a fully fluted base to the fan that included a new base switch . The fan continued to evolve until around mid year 1908 when it was replaced by the newly introduced twin bearing model.
The fan shown in this gallery was meticulously restored in a custom dark green finish that allows it to fully complement its new home in St. Petersburg, Florida. We can restore this model to complement any decor. Some of the features of the 1902 General Electric desk fan are:
