Your fan appears to have been manufactured and marketed specifically in 1911-12(St. Louis agency mention on tag) if your motor tag does not have the San Francisco agency listed. MESCO manufacturing facilities were Jersey City until 1907 when Ravenna, Ohio was included to manufacture MESCO product. MESCO must of outsourced the Shedd brushed AC fan motor, they appear to briefly announce to electrical trade AC and DC fan motors.


The earliest mention I see "so far" for MESCO marketed AC fan motors is 11.

The San Francisco agency appears in ……….1913.
