Just found today in an antique shop in Corpus Christi, TX. You don't see many old fans down here, I just happen on to this one. I don't know much about Emerson Fans, Most of my fans are GE and Diehl. It's in pretty good shape and runs well. Could someone help me date it and there are two screws missing on the neck I am not sure what they do. I have not done a thing to yet, just cleaned the dust off the stand( cool stand all cast). I would appreciate any information on this fan.

Hi Bobby, is that the same fan pictured in the other post? I only see one screw "missing" . To mount the fan on the wall (bracket mount) you remove the thumb screw that you use to pivot the head up and down and then move the thumbscrew to the other hole. That's why there's an extra hole. 

I'm not sure which other screw is missing? Maybe post a pic? 


Cheers, 

Lane

Yeah that hole is where the thumbscrew pictured goes when wall mounted. I'd like to help you with a date, but I'm getting ready for a business trip. I know someone will help with the date. The pedestal stand likely isn't original for a fan, but it looks nice with it in my opinion!

Bobby, the 27646 dates 1919 - 1922.  I'm not sure if it can be dated to a specific year within that range, maybe one of the Emerson gurus or just someone more knowledgeable than me in general will chime in.  I doubt that the stand is originally something that would have come with the fan, but it's very nice in appearance.  Jim

thanks Lane and Jim for the information. I would like to know more about the stand because it is cast and looks like it was made it fit the base of that fan. The lined up perfectly and you can tell they were not drilled later.

So that's why there's 2 holes....I always thought I was missing something too.
