Unfortunately I doubt you’ll find one. They were a rubber gasket/seal/ ring that have hardened from age and most stretch or crack beyond repair if you try to remove the cage.  

Some have found ways to remove the cage without ruining the rubber, but I doubt anyone has a spare if it’s missing. 


I wish I had better news for you, Sorry.

This is a later version of this fan, it WAS two tone brown and beige from the early 60s , and the rubber ring had been discontinued in the mid 50s and the rear grille has to be be made to fit in the rear ring under the "lip" ...it is a total pain to get the grille in there but if you can  kind of "bow" the grille like an umbrella that can work but i bet it takes more than one person....as someone needs to hold the fan. The rubber ring stopped being used around 1956 and even the earlier models from 57 or so on didnt have the rubber. too bad you arent closer i could help you with it
