1935 was a very good year


Commented Randy Latocki on last Friday's post on the fan with cloth blades, "Check out the 1935 Singer Ribbonaire" (above).

The Flickr caption: "This amazing object is a redesign of the less-streamlined 1931 original. The blades were made of grosgrain or elastic ribbons, making the usual wire cage dispensable. Made in the U.S. by the Singer Sewing Machine Company, it was molded of Bakelite. This one was found in great shape and in perfect working condition, but unfortunately the original grosgrain blades had to be replaced by elastic ones. It is 34 cm high, including the blades."

Good call, Randy.
