One burning question I still have is, what kind of switch would be correct for this particular fan? I've seen pics showing all kinds of switches both modern and old. I've seen both rotary and pull chain types but nothing stating what would be period correct. Perhaps there's nothing really "correct", I don't know.
A snap switch is what it would have had.

They are not cheap even if you could find one.

I do see a speed coil in your fan.  I don't remember off the top of my head if these are 2 or 3 speed.

You can always wire it on high and use a fan rated wall control until you find a snap switch.
