This is my first time posting and new to this the fan is a Vortolex F11V163 (cat.#21 A1.4 series), also known as "Quite Fan"It is 3 speed, oscillating fan with four 16"  trailing tip blades.
Color is light grey.
It works and oscillates on all speeds. Overall height is 21" .
Thanksgiving for any help John Tatum

Is this the fan you have?

If so I don't know the part you need but I don't have parts; just trying to help others know what you need.

Yes that's the fan I bought.  Is it a hard to find badge? Thanks for help me with the correct name for the part. John Tatum

John, I don't know anything about the fan you have but wanted it to be made clear what part you need in case others have a red cage badge for you.   My interests in fans stop about 1935 and your fan is c.1950 or so.

John, without seeing the fan you have and the data tag I don't know what you have or need but, from your description, I think your Vortalex is later than the ones with the gold and brown cage badges.  Read over this information and it might help you.
