    Mid 1930s fan with bakelite base. Bakelite being an early form of plastic. It also has a unique two bladed propeller style for the fan blades. I bought this for my brother for his birthday. Sadly he liked it as I kind of wanted to keep it. It is in near mint condition works perfectly including oscillating.

      Your 2nd. fan posting...Brian, I just came across by accident a fan that is to be rare. It needs TLC, I'm told that it is from Signapore. I'll know over the weekend when cleaning it. I want to post it at some point and maybe you could have some info on it..Also, I got a what is known as a 'Moose Horn' blade, in good condition, don't know much about that either. See what CW does..it makes you pick up things you don't collect! Lol!!

      Thomas.

      Thank you very much Thomas. I fear I don't know much about fans from Singapore. I have just been collecting American fans. If it was made for the American market I don't think it would be older than the 1960s. Post it and I can tell more.
      Moose horn I also don't know, nothing comes up on various searches.
