I just picked this guy up on eBay for $10. The seller was kind enough to let me pick it up in person. I wasn’t able to find a model number anywhere on the fan and wanted to know what year it might be from? (My guess would be the 1960s). Any information would be helpful.

I believe that fan is early to mid 1960s, as the Westinghouse Emblem used on that fan is the same as on some of my old Westinghouse Vacuum Tubes that date from that time period.
That fan was probably one of the last of Westinghouse's American Made Fans before they started having them made overseas in the 1970s.

I JUST PLUCKED MINE OFF THE SHELF. THE MODEL NUMBER WAS ON A STICKER ON THE BOTTOM.       AT-10-1 IS WHAT I HAVE AND THE ADDRESS HAS NO ZIP CODE . SO IT WOULD BE PRIOR TO THE INTRODUCTION OF ZIPS. DEFINITELY MID 60S THIS FAN WAS MADE I BELIEVE BY KNAPP MONARCH FOR WESTINGHOUSE . I HAVE THE 12" VERSION AS WELL. IT IS A GOOD BEDROOM FAN .

I’ve got all 3 sizes of those Westinghouse fans,10” 12” & 16” they were made by Knapp Monarch for Westinghouse.The only part that is Westinghouse are the blades.The last true Westinghouse desk fans made by Westinghouse date to 1968 or 1969.I believe the Rivera’s and Mobilaires were still produced by Westinghouse till about 1975.

Thank you all for your fan knowledge! There was more to it than I thought. Jeff do you have pictures of yours? I am curious to see a 16” model.
