Hi everyone.  I'm taking stock of my collection before the new year and would like to find new homes for these three motors.  If you're interested, please send me a PM.

1.  Marelli, maroon, type unknown, circa unknown - SOLD.

3.  Its official name is The Dayton standard fan - SOLD. 

2.  I'm told this is a GEC (General Electric Co., Ltd., the British arm of US GE), type unknown.  EDIT:  Thanks to Dan Nguyen, this is now identified as a GEC Freezor "Koolah" ceiling fan.  Thanks Dan!  Likely circa is 1905-1910.  This motor is coated with some kind of black oxide to guard against rusting, but was probably painted black originally.  No blades, irons or ceiling canopy.  Blades and canopy would have been aluminum (see the ad below), but the blade irons would probably be iron.  Old tight hairline crack running partially down the lower motor cover.  I've wire-wheeled a small area on the inside of the cover and the crack is tight, and would only require partial brass brazing to be secure and once finished, wouldn't show.  Both armature and coils have been re-wound.  This fan uses an oil well within the blade hub and the lower shaft of the armature has a spiral groove machined in it which draws oil up the lower sleeve bearing into a shallow well within the lower cover.  There's a rifle-drilled passage that allows the oil to return to the blade hub well.  The top armature shaft is threaded for an oil well cup that is missing.  While the armature has been re-wound as it was originally and all connections have been soldered, I would re-solder them again to be better than they are.  I am sure the fan runs, though I have not tested it.  Asking $1,500.

These motors are still available.  I found a set of aluminum blades and cast-iron brackets to go with the Koolah ceiling fan, included in the price.  Irons are likely correct for the fan, not sure about the blades!

Bump up.  One more motor still available.  A pretty cool one too.  I have blades and irons I can include - they're not 100% correct, but the iron head is.
