Circa 1910 All Original Emerson 12646 12" Lever Oscillator Desk Fan

Circa 1910 Emerson 12646 12" Lever Oscillator Desk Fan. The 12" Series Emerson's Are The Most Desirable Fans Among Collectors. This Fan Features Several Early Emerson Design Characteristics. The Centrifugal Start Switch Engages And Disengages The Start Winding Based On The RPM's Of The Rotor. The Centrifugal Start Switch Is Immediately Recognizable By The "Clicking" Noise At Startup And Slow Down. Beautiful "Lever" Oscillating Gearbox, Ornate Base And Motor Castings Are Very Visually Appealing. We Completely Disassembled This Example For Cleaning And Servicing. The Gearbox Has Been Completely Dissembled And Cleaned Of Old Grease, And Fresh New Grease Applied To The Gears. We Pulled The Stator And Correctly Updated The Headwire With Period Correct Fabric Covered Power Cord. The Original Finish Has Been Cleaned And Waxed. As Expected With A Fan That Is 110 Years Old It Shows Wear To The Original Finish. Original Brass Blade And Guard Have No Breaks Or Repairs. Blade And Guard Both Feature Beautiful Patina. Excellent Example Of A Rarely Offered Model.
