This early electric fan is a great piece of industrial Americana. Made around 1918, this heavy table fan was the first model of the Northwind 450 line, as denoted by the letter "A" following the type number. The second year of production was designated "450 B", the third "450 C", and so on.

The base of the fan is a heavy cast iron and the blades are a lighter weight metal with original brass-colored paint. The fan blade cage has a whimsical wavy design and a beautiful badge in the center with the Northwind logo. It measures 15" tall, 10.5" wide, and is 9" from front to back. It is fairly heavy due to the cast iron construction and weighs 10 lbs 4 oz.

It is an oscillating fan with three speeds marked 1, 2, 3 and OFF. When I purchased the fan, it worked on speeds 2 and 3, but upon recently turning it on, the fan hums but will no longer work. All wiring and cords are original. I would recommend rewiring the piece if you intend on using it for anything more than decorative purposes. The price reflects its current non-working condition.

Add some vintage charm to your home or office with this very earlly and original piece!
