Here goes... everyone check out the boxed Blenderfans that "louismando" has posted in the VCF II Yahoo group. I've never seen one with an ornate housing before... anyone want to expound on that? Also I'm assuming the funky looking blades were handmade replacements?
That blenderfan is my newest fan acquisition. It has a sticker on top of one of the blades that says it was made by the Wynndyne Company in Richmond, Virginia. It is called "The Wynndyne Collection." They obviously bought all of their fans from Emerson, and then just "pimped" them out with the ornate canopy, wooden blades, motor decorations, and the integrated light kit. I pulled it from a house that is getting torn down this week. It was at an estate sale where all the house fixtures and furniture were for sale.
