This vornado pedistal fan , got it for 200 bucks, it runs nicely, and there is a bit of surface rust, also one of the blades looks like it clipped something in its days , also it is 12 inches,

Nice Vornado Fan you have there!
Is the Blade Metal or Bakelite? Also does the Fan say O. A. Sutton on it or does it just say Vornado? 
And when I say O. A. Sutton I'm referring to Vornado's Parent Company at the time.

I'm asking because I'm trying to help you pin down a date for the fan. If the fan says O. A. Sutton on it then it dates the fan to the about the 1960s or before, if it has bakelite blades its 1950s or before, and if the guard says "Vornado Fan" on the front then it dates it from 1949 clear back to when Vornado got started in the early 1940s.

That's still a great fan even though it's not one of the earlier ones. Yours dates probably from the late 1950s.

I almost bought that fan! I live inTacoma and was antiquing in Portland a couple weeks ago.... did you see the beautiful Westinghouse 12 inch poweraire at the same shop that someone converted into a lamp? I was very sad.

Good on ya for picking it up.
Cheers!
