I have a customer who wants a beautiful brass blade/cage wall fan. It can be a desk fan that has wall-mount capability. He wants to be able to run it for 4 hrs/day. He prefers rare, but something like an ornate-base Emerson would be OK. Oscillating or non. Wall-mount Pancake would be nice. Probably 12”-16”. Un-restored OK if it runs and has no broken parts.

Kim Frank had some very nice wallmount GE pancake fans, at fanfair, that were restored.

Yes, I have seen several of his. Very nice. 

I have a tank fan. If I made a 90-degree piece, like the pancake, I could have a wall-mount tank. 

The early Emersons were convertible. You unscrew the bolt that retains the yoke, put the yoke in the bolt hole and the bolt in the yoke hole.

They're brush motors but the 12" Racine circle guard fans are uncommon and convert by removing the motor from the top of the base to a second angled hole in the side of the base. They look spiffy too...

About $800- $2,500, I think.

Antique Fan Parts.com current inventory of truly dedicated wall mount fans:









We have a pair of the GE Pancake wall mount models if desired.


We also have several desk models in brass/brass that convert to wall mount.  


I have an original tank motor neck knuckle for wall mounting but it would take some big offering to let it go.

Chad. The guy liked my R&M tank, but we figured out that it needed a 90-degree adaptor. 
I have sent him links to your fans to see what he wants.

A GE two-star wall-mount?! That might be the coolest wall-mount fan I’ve seen yet! Didn’t know that existed!
