Shown here is an 8-inch oscillating Emerson Junior from 1926.
It had a red and black badge, which was used on the Junior fans from 1923 to 1926.
They were first patented in 1899, This fan is an Emerson 27666, which was made from 1919 to 1922.
It is a 12-inch fan and it has six blades instead of the usual four.
The fan blade hub screws onto the rotor, which rotates on this hollow shaft, which is filled with oil from the single oil port on the fan's back.
This is one of Emerson's last brass-blade fans, but instead of the polished brass of earlier fans, the blades are painted gold, a finish Emerson called "dull brass".one of the fans you will see here have been restored.I clean them, at the very least, but to the many that run I oil them, and make electrical repairs if needed, and replaced the base felt if needed, so they may be used. This little 8" oscillating fan, 'Trail Blazer', was made by the AC Gilbert Co., of Erector Set fame.A view of the back of the 27666 and a 73646 gives a good idea of the size of the big motor.The big motor made its last appearance on the 71668 16-inch six blade fan in 1936.
