Seeking Tara Ceiling Fan by Southern Fan Co, Ameri

This was a fan made in Tyler TX in the 1980s I am seeking in any condition. It's most easily recognised by the fact that the fan has a variable speed control and no pullchain.

A few other descriptive factors:
-GE Motor with flywheel -Motor housing shaped like standard 80s Casablanca fan (Zephyr)
-Smaller switch housing with ornate switch cap
-Wooden speed control knob

It was offered in a variety of different finishes, and you could mix an match the sideband with the rest of the motor. The one I saw was brown with a brass sideband.

Pictures of some Tara fans similar to that which I am seeking are here:

Also, this site contains my photo homage to the lumberyard the Tara hung in (you can see the fan the replaced it with) and at the bottom of the page is my original sketch of the fan.

I am willing to go to great lengths to find this fan, as it has sentimental value.

Please email me with any info.

Thank you very much

I have one that I have had for 8-9 years now. It looks just like the one you have the pictures of.
I will try and remember to climb up there and see what brand it is.
If you want, e-mail me at home as I won't be at this site tuntil Monday Add is above.

I emailed, thanks for checking. With any luck perhaps you have a Tara, and that would make me very happy.

I put it in the subject but it got cut off. These fans were also relabeled under the name 'American Lantern'.
