We recently acquired from a lifelong collection, another wonderful Airplane fan. This is the Dallas Airplane ceiling fan designed and built in the 1930's. No cool space is complete without the addition of a true airplane ceiling fan. We believe to body to still retain its original chrome finish that is very nice with no signs of rust. There are some dents in the fuselage which is normal for the fans age. After closer inspection, the blade design appears to be a little different than others we have seen on Dallas fans and no cap on the front of the propeller either. On the fuselage where the power cord enters, is a clear plastic tube for lubrication. Around this area as well there appears to be an older repair (maybe). The fan hangs by its original bracket on top of the motor, we did not get a ceiling canopy with this fan. A variety of canopies are available depending on your application. The fan is operated by the pull chain switch under the fuselage and if desired could be controlled by a wall switch. The original motor id tag is still present on the bottom of the fan. Super cool addition to any space.
