A friend sent me these pics from a flee market.   I have not seen the paint accents before and the cage doesn't have the mid stabilizing ring that most seem to have.  Looks earlier.  It was $6800.  And a nice motor I didn't notice till hours later.  I don't know the maker.

I just saw you mentioned an unusual motor, I think this might be the one you are talking about, same dude:

The decoration on that 6 wing Edison is not like others I have seen which do vary in the style of decoration but not like this one.   Also, the bearings look as if they are ball bearing unlike the earlier style, below, with an oil drain from the bearings.
Here's a similar Edison from ebay years ago.  Is the center cage ring smaller on this one below?  I think Alan Willms' reproduction cages had a slightly larger center ring or maybe I am thinking of his Ironclad model.

The fan in the OP almost looks like a rebuild/upgrade from some machine shop years ago.

Al of the six blade Edison’s I’m familiar with have a cast brass tag on top the motor. The striping does not look original to me.

I think this is a unique fan.   Different cage?  Unusual paint accents?  No tag but yet no holes where it should be and some sort of decoration where the tag should be? I'm no expert, but to me it looks original.

Oh, and the motor is barely visible in one of my pics. Different than your pic. Mike.

First, let me state that I am no expert on Edison fans, or any early fans, for that manner.  My comment is simply a casual observation.  In looking at the side view of the fan in question, it appears that the blade wings are curved backwards as if the blades were intended to run clockwise.  Is that an optical illusion, the blade on backwards, my failing vision?  I can't say, but in any case, the pictures of the fan that Steve posted, look to me, that the wings are essentially flat.  Again, just my observation.

Both would run CCW. Even if the blade was on backwards, air would still blow the same direction.

Guess I go to the wrong flea markets. That 4 would have come home with me...

There was also this ten-inch 220 volt Marelli, missing bits here and there for $170.00:

The holes on top of the feet are not found on US models.

This fan looks very familiar. Looks exactly like the one I saw at the radio show back in may.
