    Manhattan electric motor came in graduated sizes up to 10 or 12" tall. They can be found with fan blades or not. Different versions sell for different amounts, but in general the values range from about $100 to $300 or sometimes more for these small toy motors.

    ca. 1910-20

    They made motors for fans, toys, small machinery. Old motors are heavy due to the materials they had at the time. Dave
