1893 Meston Series AA 12" Desk Fan
We Are Very Pleased to Have a Rare Opportunity to Offer Our Customers a Possibly Once in a Lifetime Fan. This is an 1893 Meston Series A 12" Desk Fan. This is One of Five Series A Meston Fans Known to Have Survived. When Found, This Example Needed an Extensive Cleaning and a Couple Parts to Make it Complete. As With All Mestons We Have had the Privilege of Viewing, All Have Seen Some Tampering with Internals of the Motor Over the Years. This Example was Missing Most of the Original Rotor Which was Recreated From an Original Example by Master Restorer Mike Petree. The Exterior of the Motor is 100% Original, This Surface has Been Lightly Cleaned and Waxed to Reveal the Amazing Finish. This Example had Misplaced Its Original Blade and Guard Over the Last 100+ Years. Mike Petree Recreated This Blade Using an Original Example. The Guard was Handmade by the Amazing Artist Paul Graves. Paul Created this Guard from an Original Catalog Image. This Fan has Received Restorations From the Best in the Business.
This is a 133 Cycle 52 Volt Motor. This Will Run Via a Variac but Runs Best on a Variable Frequency Generator. This Fan Runs Perfectly on One Speed.
