1905 AEG Ball Socket 12" Desk Fan. The most unusual motor to base mounting design I have ever seen, this AEG features an adjustable Ball and Socket Design. The design gives the motor the flexibility to rotate and swivel around to the desired angle. The blade, cage and hardware appear to be nickle plated with a clear (?) on the blades that has started to peel. The black enamel paint it original and in decent condition for its age.
