Professionally Restored 1912 12" Robbins & Myers "Gearback" Oscillating Desk Fan.  "Ijar" (Code Word given by Robbins Myers) was offered in 1912 as the Model 1153 as part of their 11 series of oscillating Desk Fans.  This fan appears almost exactly like the day it rolled off the production line in Springfield Ohio.  This fan was part of the New England collection from which we have been selling many wonderful examples.  The restored fans contained in that collection were all restored by a local professional automotive restorer and are of superior quality.  Pinstripes appear to be hand painted and expertly applied.  The motor appears to have been rewound, several fans in this collection were wound by the late Sydney Lamb and this appears to be one of those.  Brass was not polished and still retains its wonderful 110 year patina.  Fan runs and oscillates perfectly on 3 distinct speeds.  Excellent fan for daily use!!
