Historically Important Emerson Type 19644 8" Brass Desk Fan.  This Fan Is From The Estate/Collection Of The Late Great Sam Morgan Of Fort Worth Texas.  Sam's Career Began With Central Electric Where He Worked For 25 Years Repairing Electric Motors.  While Working On Electric Motors Early In His Career, He Gained An Interest In Antique Electric Fans. Any Fan Collector Who Met Sam Or Had Any Knowledge Of His Abilities Describes Him As A Genius At Repairing Fans!!  After A Difficult Battle With Cancer, Sam Passed In 2018.  Sam Joined The Team At "Vintage Fans" In Keller Texas In 2010, Where He Restored, Serviced, And Repaired Desk And Ceiling Fans. 

This Is An All Original Finish Survivor Of Emerson's 8" Desk Fan Model From 1914.  We Were Fortunate To Have Had The Opportunity To Acquire Components From Sam's Collection Directly From His Workshop.  This Little Emerson Was Tucked Into A Corner Of His Garage And Extremely Well Preserved (Guessing An Early Acquisition And As More Projects Came In, This Was Moved To The Back).  Finish Is In Stunning Original Condition With No Touchups, We Have Cleaned And Waxed To Reveal Its Original Sheen.  Original Numbering Still Retains Emerson's "Day One" Gold Lettering.  Brass Components Have Beautiful Original Patina!!  Motor Has Been Serviced For Daily Use And Runs Perfectly On 3 Distinct Speeds With A Wonderful And Pleasing Breeze.  Power Cord And Head Wire Have Been Upgraded Using Our Period Correct OTR+W Cloth Covered Wire.  Howard Granoff Designed This Wire For Use On Electric Fans And Was Assisted By "Early Fan Collectors" During Its Design.  Sam Quite Possibly Could Have Been Involved In The Design And Development Of Howards Design.

Included In This Listing Is A Group Photo Featuring Sam Morgan.  This Photo Was Taken While The Texas Crew Were Putting The Finishing Touches On Their Best Fan Of The Year Entry During An Early Fan Fair.  From Left To Right: Steve Cunningham, Billy Simms, Sam Morgan, Jerry Henry, And Paul Graves.
