Western Electric Hawthorn Fan

(1/2) > >>

Doug Rose:
I was so excited to find this fan I didn't realize it was missing one of the supports.  >:(   BUT I don't think it would have mattered.

This is first day of cleanup and I am happy with it.,,,,so far!

You could not even see the label on the cage through the layers of paint.

Cage is bent and I will try to straighten it. The fan does work but missing the label over the back of the control.

I have never seen this WE Brand. Made in Hawthorn so I guess that was the designation.

Now to find a bracket....Doug

Watch out Doug! Electric fans can be a very addictive hobby.

Howard only WE fans, I got a one in July at Brimfield so one of them has to go....never seen the Hawthorn designation, I know it was a WE Plant....Doug

HowardPgh:
Doug, I think that's a rebranded Westinghouse fan. The blades spin opposite (CCW) to a normal fan.

Witty:
Good job cleaning that up Doug.
As Howard alluded to, there are a lot of fan collectors out there, and several nice fan collection websites.
Your fan looks awesome!
