My aunt from Pa. found this fan at a flea market and gave it to me.It was a pleasant surprise :D.
  It has a number 30 on the badge so I take it it's circa is 1950. It's a one speed SB/SC oscillator.
Didn't need any parts. Had to braze a couple of wires on the cage. Stripped it all down and gave it a  different color. Painted the base and housing an Arizona beige and the blade a bronze color. It runs smooth and quite. A nice little addition to my collection.

Looks like an original plug

Was the one hole in the base used to hang on the wall or used to maybe retain the power cord?

Nice job Vic. I like your color choices too. They look appropriate for the original time period. 👍

Thanks guys for your nice comments 😀.
I had to change that boring factory beige color with something different.

Looks good! And yes, the hole on the base is for wall-mounting.
