I've use this website for research on all my fans with tremendous results, and have attempted to do so once again with my resent purchase. This time however I've run into a  dead end. I've seen some that are close in the gallery, but no match. It's distinguishing feature is it's Bakelite base. Can I please have some help with identifying this. Thanks

Hi Scott,Your fan is what Westinghouse referred to as the Frostaire. Westinghouse advertised the fan as an economical entry level low priced fan The was affordable for The home.Single speed,oscillating,lightweight,and stylish.Id date the fan from around 1938 thru 1940.Hope this helps !!

Thanks Jeff, i was surprised when i researched the fan that I was unable to find out much information on it. Also I didn’t think it was that old either, well it's now part of an ever going collection.
