I have a 12" Hunter brass blade fan.  The badge does not have the form or and other information stamped on the tag.  There is an NP 16652 on the tag and I am thinking this is just a number identifying the specific tag.  The badge on motor indicates Fulton NY and No 58868.  I do not see any Hunter information on the site unless I missed it.  Any information on the year made or over all impression of Hunter and this model.
Thanks

Re-badged General Electric AOU if I'm not mistaken.

Done by member Ted Kazcor. Phoitos don't do it justice.

As was said, it's a rebadged GE.  With the welded cage and all cast iron motor and body it would be equivalent to a 1921-24 GE brass bell oscillator.   Excellent fans.  Hunter later sold a copy with a die cast body and base that looks ver close but it not the quality of the GE one.  I don't know when they first sold their copy, it could have been anytime after 1921 I guess.
