I have a similar desk model, probably French, that appears older judging by the larger castings and oilers. It lacks the uber-cool open oscillating mechanism from Robert's Martinot, a really nice fan.

An AC brush motor, a large adjustable brass screw in this stationary model may be loosened to allow the fan to swivel.

Rear ... Large brush caps with leads originating from the motor coils.

The motor tag style resembles the Robert's Martinot. Since it's rated for 115 volts, I assume the fan predates the 220V+ modern standard in Europe.

No magnet wire speed coil aids in speed change in this fan -- just Nichrome.

Switchplate top: The taps here are different than those I've seen on American fans.
