Very exited to have brought my first fan! Just trying trying to figure out where to get started and start doing some research. Any help identifying what I have would be much appreciated. Do you think this is a good starting restoration? Seems to go well but have not got the oscillation to work yet

It's c.1936 birth date, possibly exactly 1936, close to the end of 75425 production which was first catalogued 1909.

Thank you very much Steve I wondered whether it was 30's by the Art Deco look of it. I start to clean it up this weekend thank you

The paint looks good under all that dust. A good cleaning, polish, and new felt on the base plate should have it looking great without much effort. How's the wiring?
