And transferred the dirt from fan to rags and Q-tips.   I don't care for polished brass so don't do much to the brass although this fan could stand some cleaning.  You can also go to a higher shine if you rub out the paint and wax it.  I like fans to look old and am not trying to get the last bit of shine to the paint; just a soft gloss is how I like it.

Is the center cage ring on your fan solid in back or hollow?  That might help date the fan but I would say it is either a 1908 or 1909 model.  I get more into dating in my blog post I linked to above.
