Hi All, 

So I just purchased from our favorite auction site an unusual little Westinghouse. Its a 9 inch model with brass blades. Unfortunately the motor tag is missing. I have never seen a 9 inch model like it either in person or in period literature. On first look, one's initial reaction is to think its a frankenfan since it has the rounded blades like size its 12 inch counterpart, the base of the later Whirlwind models, and the polyphase motor of 
the more common 8 inch style 165365. However, the fan has a three speed switch unlike the Whirlwinds and the cage and blades are factory. Has anyone seen one these before? As for age my best guess is that it was made as early as 1914 and
possibly as late as 1917. Any help would be most appreciated.

Yes, they are sort of an oddball and not too often seen.  Nickel plated steel cage and nickel plated brass blades.   The motor looks the same as the 8" Westy induction motor but may have some differences.   Below is a later model from 1919.


I sold this earlier one a few years ago but still have one to go.
























The number stamped in Westy blade hub fingers is, I think, the year made.   I can't clearly read this number but it's not 10 and probably something like 16 for 1916.
