1910-12c. Dayton Fan and Motor Company, Dayton, OH., U.S.A., 60" Two Blade Antique Ceiling Fan
The Dayton Fan and Motor Company manufactured this model with several slight variations through its production run. Most notably, they used several variations of blade brackets while keeping the original ornamental styling of the motor housing the same. Dayton offered this model in a two blade version in the early part of the production run. Original two blade fans are scarce because most of the ceiling fan manufacturers adopted the four blade design as the standard by 1908. Dayton held on for a few more years and produced the two blade by simply machining four hole placements for brackets rather than the eight needed for the four blade version.
The massive motor on this fan pushes its 60" blade span with ease making this model the ideal candidate for a large interior space. The 60" Dayton has a distinctive ornamental styling that will compliment many interior decors including Victorian, Arts and Crafts, Bungalows or Custom Homes from today.
We custom restored this two blade Dayton for a historic home in Virgina. The fan features a custom Vintage Fans Copper Verde finish, solid mahogany blades and period style custom fabricated light attachment.
