Antique Appliances: New life for old fans

Reviewed by:
Rosemary Thornton
Ceiling and desk fans made through the 1950s were built to last. With a thorough restoration, they can give many more years of stylish cool breezes.

Vintage Fans restores and sells antique ceiling and desk fans, removing the electric motor, inspecting, testing, repairing and reinsulating. All wiring is replaced with (new) period-appropriate wiring. Bearings and other moving parts are removed and inspected and replaced when needed.

If you already own an antique fan, the company will restore it for you. Also available are custom light attachments for vintage ceiling fans.
