I picked up this fan off ebay along with an Eskimo fan.  This one has no badges or anything where I can ID it.  Some pictures below.  Any ideas?   All I've done to this so far is taking it apart and did a deep rust soak (except for the motor) and cleaned it up a bit. Going to continue restoring but was curious what the make/model of this fan was.   Greatly appreciated.

It looks like it might be a Polar Cub fan but not sure.

Thanks, I looked up a few polar cubs on ebay to get an idea of how they look.  The fan blade design favors them.  But the fan motor housing is different.   Here is a side view of the fan from the ebay ad when I purchased if it helps.   The assembly is a little flatter.

It could also be an early Dominion as well.

Ah!  Thanks so much!  Looking at them now and yes it matches up.  So these models, between 40's - 50's?

I would say late 50s-60s.

Yes, Knapp-Monarch that's what I was thinking of, more than likely a Koldair or Jack Frost Fan, the middle of the blade assembly would of contained the fan's ID Badge but its long since disappeared it seems which is common on these fans.
Hope this helps.

Very much and many thanks!  And great find on the sales ad.   So about mid 60's.   After getting this one back up and running with a new coat of paint, I may just keep this at my desk.  Replace the tiny plastic usb fan pictured behind this in the first picture.  

The oil wicks on these are a bit different.  They look like a cut Scotch-Brite pad.  Not exactly sure if I can replace them or just try to clean up the original pad and run with it.
