Here is an old ivory Westinghouse I found today and it actually works! Even the neck is intact. I've never found one of  these that was not completely worn out. Granted, it looks like someone painted it with a paintbrush but I guess that's not as bad as rust.It needs a little solder job on the switch and head wire, but again, it could be much worse. I was shocked when I turned it on and the oscillator still works!  :shock:

This one has three speeds. I removed the paint from the badge and the switch lever. It looks a little bit better now.

I've got a fan just like that, except mine as a slightly different badge.
here's mine:

Here is a look at the stator. I think the head wire and cord were replaced a few decades ago with what looks like old clothes iron or toaster cloth cord. I replaced it with slightly less old rubber type cord. I would have used cloth cord but I dont have any on hand.The stator slid out very easily so it was not a difficult job. If I keep it I'm going to just buy about ten feet of cloth cord and replace both the head wire and the cord.

Yep that's exactly the way mine was, except mine had its original headwire intact but it was severed clear through in one spot causing the fan to not work right, I tried to take the stator out of the motor housing on mine but mine wouldn't budge so I just had to use some of what was left of the original headwire and wire a new headwire onto my fan and use shrink tubing to ensure that what was left of the original headwire that I attached the new headwire to didn't arc to the motor housing. 
One weird problem with my fan though is that even though its a 3 speed fan, only High and medium speeds function properly and low speed is non-existent for some reason.

Do you have any ideas as to why that might be?

I decided to go ahead and rewire this one with a new cloth cord and head wire. Here are a few pics of the work.This is a shot of progress on the stator or head wires

I also put in new grommets. It would have been nice to get a correct threaded bakelite or plastic grommet for the head wire. A simple rubber one will have to do.This is the switch once it was finished

I bought the cord with a plug from this supplier on ebay for about $12They shipped it right away and the packaging was highly professional. If you need cloth cord I recommend them

In 1918 Westinghouse advertises their 10" model both stationary & oscillating with a ZINC plate blade.
