    Another Al Bersted Fan. Bersted products were generally sold in drug stores, 5 and dimes, and small department stores. Al Bersted purchased many small companies and among these was McGraw Electric Co. Actually McGraw Electric bought Al Bersted's companies but Bersted ended up as CEO of McGraw Electric so go figure.
    This is a non-oscillating fan and the interested feature to this is the unique paint scheme. The blades and rear housing cover are painted white and the base is black. The motor housing and fan hub are the usual green speckled color. I can't find other examples of this paint scheme so it could be a custom job. But the paint is very well done, no overspray on the underside or other spots not normally visible and looks to be factory quality.
    Traded a picture of Andrew Jackson for it at the Rose Bowl.
