If I had the $$ to buy any fan I wanted I would! My interest lies in fan collecting at this time Should I hit the lottery I would buy the best available whether restored or not. The exotic fans like Hc's, peerless, early emersons, or ge's, bipolars and countless others are wonderful but. Is there anything better looking than the simple graceful lines of a 20 's  westinghouse 16" brass blade fan with a black steel cage? A 12" 20's emerson with brass bullwinkle blades and steel cage? Emmys are everyday workers and are beautiful!. The ge's collar oscillators, kidneys, Brass bell's are great fans to look at and use and appreciate. I think the zenith of fan design was in the teens and twenties. I know there are many who will feel different and it's ok... what's between my ears is what counts!
