Ceiling Fans

Built from patterns used in a 1976 Smithsonian exhibit, these old-timey belt and pulley fans feature solid mahogany blades and metal parts cast and machined by Amish craftsmen. Motors can be mounted on a wall or ceiling or hidden in an adjoining room or closet. Fan bodies are available in iron, aluminum, and bronze. While these don't have the chilling effect of more contemporary, higher-speed fans, we think they're plenty cool. New Park, Pennsylvania; 717-382-4754; Woolen Mill Fan Company
