A friend of mine brought this little Vortalex out to show off.

Nice looking original fan.  The ivory and aluminum look great.  I have a newer model FM9V1 in bronze on the way and only hope it looks half as good as yours when I clean it up.

The Vortalex in your video is a first Generation Model made in either 1938 or 1939, as it has the 5x3 cage. they went over to a 3x3 cage in 1941.
I saw a fan just like that for sale at a local antique shop in Niles, Michigan Along with a plated R & M 3804X which were both the same price which I decided to go with the plated R & M because I figured that was probably a little less common than the Vortalex. 
And  I turned out to be correct in my assumption, so now I'm the proud owner of 2 very uncommon fans.

Nice fan!  I have a 942 as well and just love the cream color with the polished aluminum blades.
