Deco Emerson Fan Restored–SOLD

I was running an eBay auction for the studio-restored Emerson desk fan. The auction has ended, but you can still see in the images what a great item it was! What’s the big deal about a desk fan? Emerson desk fans are widely regarded as perhaps the best ever made. Their slogan, “Built To Last” certainly holds true for these beautiful examples of Machine Age design. You just don’t see this kind of quality and attention to detail in objects like this today. Sure, you can pickup a plastic desk fan at the local convenience store for fifteen dollars, but will it last 80 years?

This example has undergone a complete restoration, from the finish right down to the the electrical wiring. Some of the parts have even been brass plated.

Now that the auction is over I think it was a great success. If you’d like one of your own, let me know and we can work together to find a rusty original and I do the restoration for you.
