Hey fellow fan gurus! I recently restored a Kenmore 303.8030 8" Fan. 
I made it a themed restoration for Macon, GA's Cherry Blossom Festival. So I went with a pink blush color, and jute twisted cord!

I hope it meets your approval!

As with all the repairs & restorations I do, I like to get more info on these fans (year built, company trivia, etc.)

Can anyone provide info on this model of fan?

Thanks again!

Looks like a late 40s or early 50s rebadged Eskimo by Bersted. Nice job on the restoration.They were cheap fans made for the working class coming home from the war. Thus from the factory, no switch. Of course they were built better than anything today evidenced by the fact they are still around.

That's the prettiest one of those I've ever seen. The cord is...fabulous!
