Some of you may have have seen this hulk of a fan at last year's Fan Fair in Indianapolis.  At the time, virtually no one knew anything about it or had seen another.  Since Fan Fair, a couple of complete specimens have surfaced, and we now know that it is a Cook Air Circulator, and was manufactured in Chicago in the 30s-40s.  This is the third example that has surfaced.  

The design of the motor housing, blade, and cage speaks for itself.  Over the top, to say the least.  Research into the designer - as well as patents for the design - has, to my knowledge, turned up nothing to date. 

Missing is the pole and base (which, compared to the motor housing, is rather plain). Somehwere on the Forum is a picture of a complete example (it was posted back in 2009, I think).

Nick Loos and I spoke about bringing this fan back to life, but I've decided it's a project best left to someone else. :D

The fan is untested, and there are a couple cracks in the motor housing.  I have lots of detailed pics if you are interested.

$375 or best offer, and I will deliver free of charge to Pig Pickin'.

Chris,

Whats that long bar on the bottom of the motor housing? It doesn't seem to be connected to anything

Adam,

As Chris stated it is missing the pole and base.

I saw one of those sell at an auction in March, it went very very very cheap.
