By my guess it's from the early 1950's. Was it repainted? Does it work? Also I would possibly buy this fan to restore if you don't feel like working on it. I'm always on the lookout for Japanese fans.

Thanks Russ! I had no idea Hitachi made fans that old and I’m now wondering how I can identify its actual age. Very few markings of any kind on it.Cheers!
