Antique Westinghouse Brass Blade & Guard Desk Fan Early Rare Original Paint Nice. 12 Westinghouse Stationary Desk Fan 104V 133CY circa 1905-06.
Restored approximately 25 years ago. Seldom seen rare 133 Cycle.1st version of Tank Fan right after the Pancake. Larger Vent Holes, Smooth yoke, Struts attach directly to round profile, Solid ring guard center. Early switch with no threaded hole to hold fiber plate, different base design. Early collector quality fan for the Westinghouse Collector.
Very rare version in a very rare cycle, (Tesla's original cycle design). This fan has been in my possession for over 25 years. It was restored preserving the stunning original paint, if any touch up was done it was only lightly(not over done) touched up using PPG or Glasurit automotive single stage urethane. The fan is 100% original Westinghouse.
The blade and guard are both original Westinghouse as is all the brass. The original blade that came on the fan when found at a flea market was actually a cast brass hub early Tank blade that had two wings sawed off.
Being an impossible blade to locate, we used a stamped brass hub blade that Westinghouse quickly adopted on the early Tanks. I have not tested it lately, but it ran when first restored. I only displayed it through the years because of the 133 cycles only allowed it to run a short while at about 1/2 speed. It was only shown to a handful of collectors and has never been shown at Fan Fair, so it has largely been incognito through the years. I displayed it at home without a cord, because I considered it a nuisance on the shelf.Please ask any questions and I will be happy to answer. Out of curiosity and some request, I checked to see if the fan would run. I was unable to make it run through the switch though the switch is complete and the coil does not appear to be burned out. I bypassed the switch and was able to get it to run directly to the head wire after a push on the blade.
