Carleton fan motors for the 12 season are now offered in 3 sizes......6", 8", and 8 5/8" for alternating and direct current. No mention of oscillating Carleton fan motors for the 11 or 12 seasons. 


The Carleton battery fans for 1912 are offered in 6" or 8" blade diameter.  They are now offered for 6, 12, and 20 volt battery circuit.

The first Carleton oscillating model was introduced POSSIBLY in 13, 1914 for sure. Details on the Carleton fan motors can be found on the last listing of the 14 image provided.

THE CARLETON "OSCILLATING" FAN MOTOR ALONE MAINTAINED THE EARLIER HINGE PIVOT FOR THE 1918+ FAN MOTOR SEASONS.


CARLETON EFFECTIVE 1918 HAS IMPLEMENTED A NEW "BALL & SOCKET" FAN MOTOR PIVOT TO REPLACE THE HINGE JOINT ON ALL THEIR STATIONARY FANS .

Electrical Record trade journal supports 1919 as the last year for Carleton alternating and direct current circuit deak fans.


If you find a alternating or direct current Carleton desk fan with the BALL & SOCKET fan motor pivot......it dates 1918-19.


I can trace Carleton battery fans with the BALL & SOCKET fan motor pivot 1918-22..+(?)

I have made a correction......I misinterpreted the article for 18. Carleton "oscillating" fan motors were NOT discontinued in 18.


For the 18 fan motor season all "STATIONARY" Carleton desk fans sported the NEW "ball & socket" pivot feature. The "OSCILLATING" Carleton fan motor maintained the HINGE pivot feature of past.

I am glad you brought that up, it slipped my mind.

It's not just "Liberty".  I witnessed as late as 19, and as early as 15 on the AC or DC circuit offerings the trademark........................."Dervish".   Anyone with "Dervish" on the motor tag?

Regarding the blade sizes in post #2; I wonder why they bothered with the upsize from 8" to 8 5/8"? A head scratcher for me...
