Circa 1910 12" Eck Tigre Hurricane Sidegear Ball Motor Oscillator Original Finish
Circa 1910 12" Eck Tigre Hurricane Sidegear Ball Motor Oscillator Original Finish. Manufactured by ECK for the South American market using the "Tigre" name. Original Condition of this example is exceptional!! The South American market heavily used their fans and it is very rare to find one in this condition. The cast iron ball motor paired with the exposed "crude" oscillator mechanism is an excellent combination of early fan/oscillator technology. Cast iron 4 leg base retains the original switch and speed coil. The neck on this model is "convertible" for wall mounting if desired. Brass components have a wonderful original patina. Identification tag appears to have been cleaned displaying a brighter brass finish. When supplied with 220V AC, the fan runs excellent on 3 speeds with little difference noted between 1 & 2. Please view the attached video of the fan in operation.
