I have a 71666 that I'd love to have restored in that powdercoat. I have never learned how to do that.

Brett scored on this one. Very nice fan

Another member has a 1932 NOS french grey. I believe 1930 was the last year for brass blades on these.

What appeared to be a 1931 rough FG was on Ebay fairly recently. The auction stated the blades were magnetic and not brass.

The first picture looks like a spot on match to the color I chose, but the third picture looks more ivory.  I'm assuming that the white-balance is slightly off in one of these photos.  Which one more closely represents the "real" color?

Not that it's terribly important, but does anyone know if both the putty color and the light gray color were both considered "French Gray" or was one FG while the other was called something else?  Not looking to start a controversy, just curious.

I have a few ivory fans, which are typically marked as "AV" on the finish codes. French grey is much more an greyish off-white. The ivory fans came in both smooth and wrinkle finishes.

Here is the French gray and the cream colored Emmy's together... The difference is more obvious when setting together...
