Nice collection!!!!!
Do you know when that green Westy was produced? It must have been made near the end for Westy fans!
Does the 6 wing Emerson have brass or steel blades painted gold?

My very first word was LIGHT!

Thanks!

That green Westy fan was made in the late 1960s up to about 1973 or so. At that point they discontinued it and it was replaced with a plastic model that I believe was made in Japan and had clear blue blades. I believe at the end of 1974 when Westinghouse stopped selling fans.

I also have a 10" version of that Westinghouse that is very similar but the blades don't have those connectors like it does. It also came in a 16" version which I didn't seen myself.

You can see the preceding model in a purplish color with tannish blades just above it. That one was made up to 1965 or so. It also came in a beautiful blue model with clear blue blades instead of the tan.

I have also a Westinghouse box fan that was made the same time as the green fans and it has a beige colored box with metal grids, a plastic blade very similar to the GE in this photo and a green logo on the front that looks similar to the one on that green fan but says "Westinghouse 2 speed". It has a two speed button on top of the box. But it's out in the garage right now.

That Emerson with 6 wings has brass blades and I think it was made about 1919 or so. It's all original except the wiring had been replaced last year with a reproduction style. I also have a Westinghouse fan with 6 blades in brass as well as cage but it's in a box all taken apart as it came to me in pieces.

Collect vintage incandescent and fluorescent fixtures. Also like HID lighting and streetlights.

Great info!!!
Is that a plastic bladed GE hiding behind the green Westy?
I've had a few of the mauve color Westys, 10" 12" and one 16".

I have a couple of vintage Philips fans I'll probably post pictures of soon.
I'm guessing they were offered in Canada because they're 110V. They would have been branded Norelco here in the States

It is a plastic blade GE. I have two actually, that's the first one I got. Last year I got another, but it has the box, tags and everything including the sales receipt from GE Appliances with the original owners name on it.

I don't recall any Philips or Norelco brand fans here would be interesting to see.

There's a box fan very similar to the GE on the left at my family's cabin. The only difference is that the GE tag is in the corner of the grille instead of the middle.

Any machine is a smoke machine if you operate it wrong enough.

Yeah I think the first 5 blade GEs had the badge in the corner and then it moved to the middle ever since.

Nice. I can't seem to find a date on mine, but it has SUNYAL inscribed on the motor, so I believe it came from SUNY Albany, NY.
