After we purchased our house, I knew immediately if I had the opportunity I would find one of these fans. It took almost 2.5 years but finally one came up locally on craigslist and it took around a month after back and forth with the seller to finally pick it up. This one is more of a rare-er color (Antique Copper -51). Luckily the seller also had a matching Victorian 2 in the same finish that I ended up installed next to this one.

This is the updated version of the New Orleans Centennial. You can tell the difference because this one has the updated XLP-2000 (K55) Motor, as well as the badge style blade brackets and badges.
