1911c. Westinghouse 12" Antique Desk Fan

1911c. Westinghouse Electric & Mfg. Company, Pittsburg, PA., U.S.A., 12" Antique Desk Fan

This model was likely one of most successful desk fan motors ever manufactured. Westinghouse manufactured this fan in Pittsburgh when they spelled it "Pittsburg" and marketed it not only to their dealers, but also to various other fan manufacturers and distributors.

When Westinghouse provided this model to other companies they allowed other manufacturers and distributors to place their company's names on the motor tags and guard badge. For this reason, this model is often found with other names, the most common being the Western Electric Company Hawthorn and Victor label. Robbins and Myers, Dayton, Shedd, Federal and possibly others all marketed this desk fan model at times under their label.

The fan shown in this gallery is an unrestored 1911c. model Westinghouse that retains a nice portion of the original baked japanned enamel finish. Westinghouse manufactured this model until about 1911-12 when their new stamped steel stationary desk fan was introduced. The fan pictured is available in unrestored as/is running condition or we can fully restore the fan to your specifications.
