I'll go out on a limb here and say it's a Peerless, based on the base and the cage...got any more pics?

I'm pretty sure you have a Colonial or Peerless (basically the same) fan.   This is my Colonial front oscillator.   I'm not sure what year this is if anyone can help me too.  It's probably the first year for this style of Colonial.

Based on the quantity produced I'd guess a Peerless. But Steve and Jim are correct in saying that it's either a Colonial or Peerless, which were one and the same at that point in time. The cage wires are a dead giveaway on these fans.

I restored a 16" Peerless and the blades, cage, and motor housing looks like yours.

Hi Bill.  I don't have experience with this style of fan but I want to comment anyway.  I love your photos of this fan out in the open field with the treeline in the distance.  Really artistic. Folks might pay for a framed print of that. :P

How is the mechanical / electrical condition of it? I see some concerns with the external wiring; but have you checked the winding etc.?
