Up for bid is a circa 1920's vintage fan, Manufactured by Robbins and Myers of Memphis, Tennessee. In my research they (Robbins and Myers) are the precursor to the Hunter Fan Company. It's a 3 speed, 17" fan, and can be mounted on the wall, a great thing for a vintage home, or to get some air in your garage or workshop. I've used it for the past few years, and during that time have cleaned and lubed the motor, checked the wiring, and replaced the electrical cord. The original cord was cloth covered, and wasnt too safe. I've left it on for several hours at a time, and found it to be a wonderful thing to have around, as well as well being a great conversation starter! If you need a great fan, this could be the one for you! Shipping for this item is $40.00, shipped to you by Parcel Post. The reason for the large shipping fee is that once packed up, it weighs about 25 pounds. It's quite heavy! Also, due to the age of the item, it is sold "AS IS" with no warranty or exchange implied. All sales final, with the item to be shipped within three (3) days from receipt of Payment
