I just picked up this Mathes Cooler fan locally.  I'd been looking for one but they were always at a distance and didn't want to have shipped.  I don't know if it's pre-1950, suspect it's right on the edge.  My understanding is that Mathes fans, the predecessor to Curtis Mathis furniture, started up right after WWII and I've seen posts of similar looking models identified as late 40's to around 1950.  Anyway, the model # on the switch is blank, which looks to be pretty common.  The blade is about 16" across.  The box itself is 22" wide, 18" high, and 10.5" deep in the middle.  Does anyone have any idea on the model # & the year?  Also, this one does not have the traditional decal on it.  Does anyone make them?
