1920s GEC Witton Freezor 12 inch Black Electric Fan
1920s GEC Witton Freezor 12 inch Black Electric Fan made by The General Electric Company Limited, Witton, England.
There is a brass plaque on top of the fan with the maker’s name, trademark, machine number etc.
The Freezor fan is:-
- In full working order
- Has the original finish on the main body
- Made from cast iron (Frame) and very heavy!
- Has a three speed oscillator
- Approximate Height: 44cm (17.3″)
- Base diameter: 20.3cm (8″)
It works on 230/250 volts and has been AC/DC electrically restored. It passed the Portable Appliance Test (P.A.T) on 3/3/17. You can see it working in the You Tube video below.
The fan is ready to use but the front and rear oil pots should be checked before regular use: (the fan has a spring tension oil wick system that circulates oil to the motor shaft).
This is a great looking vintage fan for a retro office or study.
