Westinghouse Riviera Vintage Electric Fan

westinghouse riviera vintage electric fan

This Atomic Age Westinghouse Riviera vintage electric fan is not only one of the neatest looking fans ever designed, it is also one of the best-working fans we have ever experienced. The Westinghouse Riviera vintage electric fan has a powerful wind tunnel effect that seems to shoot a blast of air in a straight line. The futuristic aerodynamic quality of the housing and blade cover grill not only look a jet engine, but must have something to do with the sheer power in this compact 10-inch blade fan. This Westinghouse Riviera model R-1500 is an early version, with solid steel chrome tubular legs and hinges. The all-plastic housing is molded in classic Machine Age putty gray, and the metal blades and motor are painted to match. We meticulously cleaned this Westinghouse Riviera inside and out, like we do with all vintage electric fans we rescue. read more
