Bobby,

I can't offer much insight beyond my knowledge my knowledge of Emmy desk fans, but that is an incredible find. It's a very impressive looking fan, pretty work.

The stand would not be found in the Emerson catalogue, the 27xxx dates late 19 + with the later base lacking the early 19 cast embossed speed numbers and first patent ball detent or RATCHET case oscillator wheel(adjustment case).

Looks Neato torpedo.

The stand doesn't match the fan, but I sure like it.

Hello Bobby.  I was recently on a work trip to Corpus Christy area and saw (what may have been) that same fan in an antiques shop.  It was very nice to look at but the price was extremely out of line. I don't remember exactly what it was but possibly in the low 4-digit range. I hope the seller was willing to deal with you on that fan. It is a very good looking machine and the base while I believe it is home-made, is extremely good looking as well. :clap:

The base on that fan looks almost like the base to an old Gumball Machine... :wondering:
