Check out this mint condition little GE. It still has the screw in plug and the paper tag on the bottom looks excellent. I'm not so knowledgeable on these but I'm pretty sure its one of the first cast iron or steel ones.

The base and loop are ferrous metal, and the center portion of the motor is ferrous too. The oscillator and front and rear motor covers are not ferrous. The oscillator housing is probably pot metal.could the motor covers be brass?

Here is the plug. It must have at least 8 feet of cord

They could also be pot metal too.One of the things that impressed me was the paint is still good on the oscillator. Usually the paint does not like to stick to the pot metal after 100 years.

Excellent find! The sticker on the bottom isn’t even hardly discolored! Amazing that something over 100-years old can still remain in such good original condition.

The low speed on that fan is amazing. I love it. The slower the better.
