Beautifully Restored 1915 16" Menominee Snowflake Oscillator
Beautifully Restored 1915 16" Menominee Snowflake Oscillator. This fan was Professionally Restored by Carlton Ward, a Lifelong Fan Collector and Restorer this Menominee comes directly from his own Personal Collection. Carlton's restorations are at the top of their class!! Carlton uses Acrylic Enamel for the deep rich original like finish. The pin stripes are all hand painted by an expert sign painter. The mirror polished brass has been sealed with Nicholas Lacquer for years of deep rich shine.
This example has a 4 speed switch, high speed is achieved on position 1 and 4 with 2 and 3 being medium and low. This is a very impressive fan that really moves the air!! The open motor (Snowflake Design) is a very impressive and a desirable feature of this fan. The motor appears to have been rewound during restoration. The fan is just top notch, as good or better then it was on day one. A true collector grade fan!!
