It's an art deco R&M. That will be a neat fan refurbished.

Nice find Richard. R&M is the best of form and function for my money.  I'm pretty sure your fan is mid forties. I have that style in a 16" and 10". I'm loving the pedestal. The only one I've run across was in an antique store marked NFS. They used it on a daily basis and wouldn't sell it. 😢

It is a post WWII model. R & M ran that pedestal model from around 1937 to 1953 and did a couple of changeovers. The first pedestal model didn't have a motor cover over the gearbox and had an Deco base, and the switch was in the base. When they did a changeover the switch was moved to the column and the base was changed, along with putting a motor cover over the gearbox.
