Is this fan missing a badge?  If so can you identify which would be correct.

Brad,  I have one just like yours with the same cage.  Those type cages were normally used on the R&M Banner fans.   I believe that ours were industrial shop fans and R&M just used these cages with no badges because they worked in industrial applications.
Thanks, Rick Robinson ( R&M fan Collector )

I forgot to mention that mine has a factory installed wall mounting bracket instead of the base that you are showing. I'm not sure that your base is original.

Thanks Rick.  I think it's a cool little fan and a nice base.  Just curious if it was missing a banner.  Sounds like you may be on to something and the base was off a different fan.

That would be really cool with a small aluminum prop in place of the stamped steel blade

The base might be from a mastercraft fan from the 1930s.
