Small Franklin Bipolar Electric Motor
Small Franklin toy size battery powered electric motor. It is built on the same frame and principle as the small toy Bipolar Edison Motor one sees from time to time. It has been suggested that they were sold or given away at one of the expos or fairs around the country that took place after the introduction, by Edison, of his light bulbs and full size motors / dynamos. You actually see more of the Edison branded motor than you do the Franklin. This tiny motor stands just under 4" tall and has a great look with its double column exposed windings. It will display nicely and will be a nice addition to the antique electric, motor, Americana, or any other collection.
