One more time, has anyone ever come across one of these Freshy 30" or less industrial design models?  I have never seen that cast aluminum blade. It must date late 30s early 40s. Some of the address was still on the motor frame decal before it accidently got wiped off.  It was not a seen before address.

Someone had an aluminum blade at the Museum Meet. I think it was 24” or more. Ray Hane was looking it over trying to decide if it was a Freshy or not. I don’t remember if anything conclusive was decided. Maybe whoever had it can chime in.

The one at the Museum Meet which I think Jim Roadt had was probably a Russell. It was cast aluminum with a Freshy profile but still had a standard shaft mount with set screw and was a 20” most likely.

Russell Electric Co./Gaylord/Aerofan blades have characteristic hub cast and appearance.

Early Fresh'nd-aire did use the same cast aluminum prop blade as Russell Electric Co.

Just when I thought I had seen every fresh nd aire ever made, you find this thing   :hammer:
All I can add is that its post ballentine motor era with that setup.... I think!
I had found some advertising for fresh nd aire with odd things like a 26 inch with I think it was a 2 speed in a catalog once. I sent pics of the ads to a fellow member to archive it so it's still out there. 
I wonder what else will turn up  :wondering:
