Fan and

Fruit Dryer

This electric fan, which blows air upwards, was invented ca.1918 for the specific task of drying fruit. It was marketed as a kitchen appliance. Because of the direction that the blades faced, it would be considered a horizontal fan. A fruit basket would have rested atop the fan. The basket came with the fan.
