1920's 52" Fort Wayne Electric Ceiling Fan Copper Restored
This Wonderful Ceiling Fan was Manufactured by General Electric and was Sold to FWEW (Fort Wayne Electrical Works). Fort Wayne Badged the Motor With Their Own Tag Which Makes This a VERY RARE Example. This Fan Came From the Estate of Monty Young. Monty Young was an Early Member of the Antique Fan Collectors Association and Even Has a Yearly Award Presented in His Honor. Monty was a Major Contributor to the Beginning of the AFCA.
During Monty's Life Long Affair of Fans, His Restorations Became the Highest Benchmark for Other Restorers.
It is a Rare Opportunity to Obtain One of His Restorations Direct From His Personal Collection. Monty Had All the Copper Plating Restored to New Condition. The Main Motor body was Painted With a Nice Black Enamel Finish and Then Pin Striped. The Fan Still Retains its Original 3 Speed Switch. The Blades Appear to Have Been Refinished With the Restoration. A Rare Opportunity to Own a Piece of History.
