That's a Torrington blade that would date back to late 30s early 40s.

Here's another pairing of that blade/hub with a Redmond motor, this time on a "Magic Maid" hassock fan from Sun Chief Electrics, Winsted CT...

Very Cool! They made some unusual fans in the late 40s to try to keep up with demand from post WWII. It is an original for sure. Back then everybody was trying to make an easy buck on fans. Companies came went just as fast.
