e for a 1930s tudor revival? I'd like a pair of nice fan that would look in place. Looked through every catalog I have, and only a few caught my eye, and they were more arts and crafts styled that my house would warrant.

have you tried "the fan man"? I've seen his ads in some older OHJ and Victorian Homes magazines, but I don't know if he's still in business.

I think he was in Oklahoma City.

I'm going to assume you are talking about ceiling fans, and here are some links I have saved of sites having different styles:

hope this helps some...

We bought a plain-vanilla ceiling fan with wood-grain blades and a globe light, and then we splurged on a vintage handpainted glass shade to replace the globe. It has exactly the effect we wanted -- everyone notices the shade instead of the fan.

Hi Matt... I've seeen this fan at lighting stores here locally and also in catalogs... Restoration Hardware maybe?? I think it would suit both contemporary and vintage tastes... something about it in the nickel finish, it has a clean "deco" look. I don't know what decor or room you're talking about, but thought that might complement your 30s home. If you got the white one you might not notice it much at all...

Some of the posts link to Minka AIre which has a lot of options - also try QUorum International. They have a lot of choices for fans and light globes of all vintages
