I bought this fan on ebay also. The picture showed a fan with painted white blades. I had a feeling that it was a Golden Jubilee based off the poor quality picture alone. I got it in and was glad that it was in fact a GB. For those of you who don't know what the significance is, this is a commemorative edition fan for Emerson Electric. Anyway, I left it painted for some time and went on to other projects. Then one day I decided to take the blade off and strip that hidious white paint off. I applied a chemical striper and removed the paint easily. I took some rouge and buffed the blades with my grinder. After that a little brasso and elbow grease. The finished product a very nice and shiny blade. This is one of my favorite fans.
