Wow, what a neat fan! Let me know if you're ever interested in selling / trading it. I have a step up transformer already for my few international fans.

That fan was made by Veritys which was a very well known British Fan Manufacturer (they were known for their orbital fans in the early 20th Century which are highly sought after fans in the fan collector community), this fan was one of their later models from 1950s I'm guessing and seems to be a rebadge for the Australian market under the name Essex (rather than using the Veritys name on the badge).
With that being said more than likely being that its a later rebadged Veritys fan it probably isn't as valuable as an original 1920s Veritys Orbital fan is, it is definitely an interesting looking fan though none the less.

Levi ,
"I may have inadvertently scared him off "     
           I find that very funny :D :D :D :D  how could you even conceive to think you'd be able to scare me  ha

...I post only when I have the Facts...I don't guess or assume as it leads people up the wrong path...
I also  rarely look into the post 50s site  ,

[size="4" style="background-color: rgb(230, 222, 202);"]
 
If its not marelli ,  I have very little interest, and not being a "common " fan in the usa, I rarely have the opportunity to post a answer on a afca site ,unlike your self I don't have to see my name up there every day!!!! 

...My work is shown else ware on another site ,as other members here  are  aware of..

Steven
 here's  a bit of eye candy from  verity...is one of the few fans I
have that's not marelli :D ..is a long way of a Essex eh!

Those orbital fans are awesome - - I have seen them running at meets.Hope to meet one "in the wild" someday on a dusty country store!Thanks for the photos. The Essex is my only non -amercican made fan. I had a 20s German model I sold at auction at the Louisvlle FanFair.

I've seen traits of 1950s Westinghouse fans in English and Australian fans as well under brands such as Revo. I think Westinghouse had a strong international sales and licensing branch at the time.
