Your fan was made by Frigid inc 1250 rockaway ave , brooklyn, ny in the  early 1960s. The Capri name did not last long but Frigid and Vornado (Two Guys stores) names lasted a long er period. EJ Korvettes also sold fans like that with the Korv-Aire or Korvettes name but they usually had a gold bronze metallic or green metallic paint and a fancy plastic grille
yours is an early 60s vintage with the Capri name and metal grilles. the thermo was meant to shut the fan off if you were using it in a window at night and the temp cooled down , it would shut the fan off so you didnt freeze
