I'm 95% sure Wagner made their own fans. Here's Austin Ko's Wagner; it looks just like yours.






I used to have an extra Wagner aluminum blade, but I sold it.

No relationship between GE and Wagner. The latter made some nice fans but a bit different than GE. They were headquartered in St. Louis.

They made a run of fans for a year or 2 using Century grade pot metal for Stator enclosures and those relics are bout as nice as the pot metal Century fans.   The rest of them (steel or cast iron bodies) are good fans but for some reason not on anybody's bucket list.

Patina and some to spare!
The custom base will pump up the postage a bit though.

At least all of the fan is there and the hub is in good enough shape to re-wing.
All of the oscillating mechanism seems to have been rescued by cleverly being corroded shut to preserve it. It even has the brass 'star' control handle and the switch.
Just needs a cage.

As the Black Knight said in 'Monty Python and the Holy Grail', as King Arthur severed his last remaining arm,
"I've had worse!"

There are some prominent antique/vintage fan manufacturers that fail to get the respect that others maintain with collectors. Wagner and Signal come to mind, along with a few others. The 1924+ Wagner fans may have die cast metal issues, but they potentially can run very well, and quiet.

 Here's my Wagner. It's a 12" stationary, brass blade.
