Circa 1908 Hunter Electric 12" BMY Desk Fan Restored Stationary
From the Southwest Collection, beautifully restored Circa 1908 Hunter Electric 12" Big Motor Yoke desk fan. This example of the highly collectable Big Motor Yoke (or "BMY" as fan enthusiasts have labeled it) includes desirable features such as the very early centrifugal switch, two rivet blade, struts that mount flat to the motor, and the squatty base. It boasts of a glossy smooth finish with beautiful brass blades, struts, and components polished to a rich brass tone, and runs on three distinct speeds.
It should be noted that the bearing has excessive wear and will need to be replaced to ensure smooth operation.
