They marketed that fan as the Western Ekectric “Sixer”. It is a six inch blade made to compete with the GE and Polar Cub six inch fans.

The WE is less common thsn the GE and Polar Cub. If it runs that’s a fair price.

This is a 1916 ad and I see the fan advertised as the Western Electric Six (not Sixer).

Don't see a price on the original post. I found one listed for $50. https://offerup.com/item/detail/505762202/

Recalling from memory I believe the WE 6 inch was removed from the market in 21 with last changes to the model in 18.

Can someone please post a picture of the WE "SIX" marketed with the DIEHL badge?  That would be a rare bird.

Read Diehl fan motors news bottom right hand corner of this 21 electrical trade. The WE "SIX"/Diehl 6" desk fan was on the market 1916-20.

Diehl manufactured the 6" fan motor for Western Electric to market for the 16(gloss black solid body with brass blade) and 17(Bronze with motor pivot) fan motor seasons.  Diehl badged and marketed this same fan motor now finished in green with motor pivot for the first time in 1918.

1918-20 WE/Diehl 6". How can you tell?  It's green, and in 18 the 6" was either marketed alternating ….OR ….direct current.

Great that you got that fan!  I hope it didn't seem like I was trying to get it out from under you. I was just curious about it and searched when I saw your post. Also it's just not my style to ever compete with another enthusiast and drive up a price.  :pissed  Plus,  I don't need any more small fans. Have to limit my hobby indulgence so to speak LOL!
