An authentic Frost 240V desk fan dating from around WWII. A classic British manufactured piece with a substantial clamshell-pattern cast base and circular motor housing. There's a three speed switch, a stylish metal fan grille or cage bearing the makers name and the fan rotates via a geared crank mechanism to the rear. This one is in the popular Nile Blue colour and whether repaired by a suitably qualified electrician or used as a display piece, offers the perfect period charm to any setting.
Originally supplied as a desk and wall mountable fan ( see the wall mounting plate under the base) with a loop handle to pivot the head safely.
The period triple braided flex or power cable is still affixed though this piece is sold only as a display piece and the plug and cable will be cut. One of the blades is a little floppy and needs re-riveting (see photos).
