Shown in Picture: Hunter 1886 Limited Edition Ceiling Fan Model 18865 in Midas Black With Distressed Dark Cherry Basswood (Veneer) Blades. A true Hunter masterpiece is reborn with the elegant 1886 Limited Edition. The intricate sand-cast motor housing and decorative rope downrod sleeve reflect Hunter`s enduring attention to detail. A powerful and whisper-quiet Hunter motor moves two perfectly balanced carved wood blades for exceptional air movement for years to come.

Hunter invented the ceiling fan in 1886. What you see here is a replica of one of the very first ceiling fans ever made. The classic 2 blade design was how fans were originally made. The motor housing is sand cast with intricate detail and the downrod sleeve has an old fashioned rope design. If you admire authentic turn of the century design, you cannot get any closer than the 1886 Limited is the real Macoy. Requires a minimum ceiling height of 9 feet.

Included Control: 3 Speed Pull Chain

UL Listed for Indoor use only: The Hunter 1886 Limited Edition is UL Listed for Indoor use only, so it is not designed to be exposed to moisture or harsh elements. Do not install this fan outside your house. It is also not recommended for bathrooms that have a shower or tub or laundry rooms, both of which produce excessive amounts of moisture.


Minimum Ceiling Height Requirement: Building codes require residential ceiling fans to be installed with the blades at least 7 feet from the floor. In order to meet this requirement, this fan requires a minimum ceiling height of at least 106.5". If your ceiling is lower than 106.5" then you may need to add a flushmount adapter or close to ceiling downrod if one is available for the fan (see below). Any light fixture you choose to add to this fan is allowed to be less than 7 feet from the floor, so just make sure you have enough headroom to walk under it if need be. If you cannot find what you need to make this fan work in your room, please give us a call 1-800-201-1193 so we can check to see if there are any further alternatives.

Note: This fan includes 12" downrods(s)

How long of a downrod do I need?

The downrod included with the Hunter 1886 Limited Edition ceiling fan is 12", which puts the blades 23" from the ceiling. Here are the Minimum Ceiling Heights required for each downrod available for this fan. Each length will put the fan blades 7 feet from the floor, so if you want your fan blades higher than 7 feet, choose a shorter downrod to fit your needs.

How the above calculations are performed

To calculate the length of downrod that you need to get as close to 7 feet from the floor as possible (but not lower), first you must look at the dimensions of the fan to determine how far from the ceiling the blades will hang using the standard mounting hardware. In most cases, the hardware that a ceiling fan ships with is all you need for an 8 or 9 foot high ceiling...but be sure to double check the distance a fan hangs from the ceiling because some fans hang down more than 18" and will require at least a 9 or 10 foot ceiling.

Once you know how far the fan hangs with the standard mounting hardware you can calculate how far it will hang with a longer downrod by subtracting the length of the standard downrod from the length of a longer downrod. Add that length to the distance the fan normally hangs from the ceiling to determine how far down your fan will hang with any particular downrod length. If you do not know the length of the downrod that is included with you can figure that 4" is about average.
