ISO any fan by the Mimms Fan Company based out of Louisville, KY.  I believe they were manufactured in the '30's.   For obvious reasons, I want to get one for my husband; his father worked at the plant which was owned by his uncle.    Any help is greatly appreciated!

I have only run across two of those fans in the past six years. I don't think they are too common. I did pass on one in a antique store in Ohio last year for $85. I guess you would consider it a desk pedestal version with a Bakelite blade. I couldn't even tell you the name of the store or what exit it was off of. Good luck!

I asked where you were, because there is an antique store that has a hassock fan for sale. It needs restoration though.
