    The two fans shown with individual pictures were alley finds found here in Richmond. The one to the left is a 1940's Westinghouse, and the one on the right is a teal KM Kwik-Kool fan, also from the same period. The black Casablanca brass blade fan pictured center is not an antique, but still has a nice vintage look to it.

      I can say one thing... Those GE fans are real work horses and will run forever. If not running they should be easy to get going. They will blow a Toupe of a guy's head too. They made a great fan back then!

      They're both in perfect working condition, and going strong! It's hard to find the same quality nowadays.

      I love the old GE fans. If I could find one that wasn't working even, they are having a 'don't throw it away' weekend near me and they will fix small appliances for free if you bring them in. That is a true gift if you have an older item you can't find parts for.
      Ahhh... all my stuff is working this week!

      Fans are a lot of fun and still pretty easy to find. Looks like you guys found some beauties there. You have a great eye, just make sure you try to buy quality and as you have found, the more interesting the cages and blades, the better the investment IMO. Also any brass blade models are very strong right now.
