Hello everyone, this is my first post on the forums but I've been wanting to join up since I got my first antique GE fan about a year ago (I'll have to make another post showing that later). I recently got a small 8 inch Polar Cub oscillator that I cannot figure out an age or any info on and was hoping someone here would be able to help out. I have seen exactly one other image of a similar fan that said that one was dated to the 30s or 40s, but mine has a different cage and base thst leade to believe it is a little newer and it does not seem like something that was made prior to 1950. Any help would greatly be appreciated!

that looks like a heavy cast base and i would date it to the post WW2 late 1940s

Thanks for the reply Tom, it certainly is the heaviest part of it not considering the motor itself. Would you happen to know anything else or if there were any adverts that featured this line of fans?
