I acquired this fan a few days ago and do not see any tag or rivets where a tag once was. Can anyone shed some light on what era this is from and maybe the model?

Thank you

Hi, I think what you have there is a frankenfan . Someone in the past put the root beam blade on your fan. It's not original from the factory. I'm not sure of the fan type but the rotobeams are somewhat collectables fans because of the cool blade.

The cage and struts are Emerson, the blade Roto-Beam, the motor and base are to a lesser quality fan. It's worth more in parts than as a whole, IMHO.
