I believe that's what they refer to as a wrapped cage.

Those Verity Orbit fans I believe were made somewhere between the mid 1900s to the late 1920s and they are British fans your fan in particular was an export model that was meant to be imported to and sold in America hence the 110v 60 cycle power rating.And as far as an offer or buying goes, I could never touch the price of this fan, as neat as it would be to have one. I was just giving some additional info, that's all.

Perhaps if you're lucky you can find a brass cage and struts for the fan. Might help the value even though steel is stronger than the brass would be.

If I did work on it , I would probably have the cage brass plated, as it looks to be that way with the patina :?
