Sometimes also labeled as 'American Lantern'.
The Tara Quest site, mentioned below and previously, has been updated, please check it out.
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 and information about Tara fans is here:
I am willing to go to great lengths to find this fan, as it has sentimental value.
Please email me firstname.lastname@example.org with any info.
Thank you very much
