1956 or earlier kitchen exhaust fan. We have a house that was built in 1956. This is the original fan. I pulled it out of our ceiling and replaced it with a light fixture. I could not take out the inner housing without tearing my celing apart. That was not going to happen...yet. Any way, the fan works perfect. We never used it because the stove was moved to another part of the kitchen back in the 60s. I think that's why it works so well still. The fans outer housing is painted white. The blades are covered with grime from years of cooking with 100% frying oil. I did not clean it. That would be up to the retro fan who buys this fan. Okay, not funny. It works great, and would make a 50s kitchen looking like it's supposed to be. Paypal only, insurance will be around $25, you pay. That's it, good luck!
