5 Vintage Electric Fans Clipart
This is a fun little mini collection of Vintage Electric Fans Clipart! I just love the shape and style of these old vintage fans. If you find a real one, they are quite sturdy and heavy things, not like the lightweight plastic ones that have today, that fall over, and fall apart pretty quickly. These older beauties were made to last and they were quite stylish to boot. In fact people often pick these up at Antique shops, even if they are not functioning, to add some great looking Industrial style decor to their homes! You will find two similar, but slightly different, styles to use in your creative projects below.
Black and White Fan Clip Art
This might seem like an odd choice for November, but I thought this Vintage Electric Fan Clipart Picture was so cute, that I couldn’t wait until next Summer to share it! I love the industrial look of these. This comes from a 1920’s Catalog. The Fan is all black metal and has the brand “Eskimo” on the front in the center of the blades. It has the typical cage around the blades to protect them, and a black cord with plastic, or possibly Bakelite, plug on it. It appear to have holes in the base, so that it can be fastened to a table or countertop. This image would be nice for your Steampunk projects!
And here is another Vintage Electric Fan Clip Art Image. This one was also scanned from the same 1920’s Hardware store catalog as the one above. This is also an Eskimo brand fan. The difference between this one, and the one above, is that this one has silver blades rather than black ones. The rest of the fan is black though. The silver blades probably really popped against all of that black metal. Quite a striking looking machine!
Here is the latest addition to this collection. This one was scanned from an early 1900’s printer’s catalog. The design of this one is quite similar to the other two, but the image itself is a bit more rustic and not as clean and crisp as the other ones. Still it might be just the perfect look that you want for your project!
Color Fans Clipart
Here we have another version of the one at the top of the page. I played around with it and made a fun Aqua version! Such a fun nostalgic color.
And here is another fun version for you. This one I made in a soft pretty pink, almost Coral colored. I think this one and the one above would be cute in a Coastal themed Home decor project!
I hope you enjoyed this little collection of Vintage Electric Fans Clipart! You might also like our Vintage Steampunk Image Collection HERE.

Thanks Karen x
Thought I would just take the time to say Thank You for the wonderful images. I follow you and in the past have just assumed you have so many followers you must know how appreciative we are. Today I reminded myself words unspoken are words unheard. I go to sleep every night with the humming of a vintage fan! I also just bought another one last month at the Roundtop, TX antique show.
I totally dig this! I really like old fans. Thank you!

Lift Up Your Hearts,
It’s hard to explain, it’s sort of a blend of Science Fiction, Fantasy & Victorian Industrial.
Machines, particularly steam powered ones, play a big part in it. If you google it, or search on Etsy, you’ll find all sorts of cool stuff, from Jewelry to Fashion to Art.
As always T H A N K Y O U.
Great fun as always Karen 🙂
I thought I’d let you know I’ve nominated you for the “Tell Me About Yourself” award 🙂
