Hi, I recently purchased this fan and hope I could get some information from this group. As you can see in in the photographs it is a Stromberg Carlson fan, serial number 9490, it has a 1/4 hp Crompton Parkinson motor made in Doncaster England and was used in a tube manufacturing

factory then a boot makers.
Any information of the age of the fan and its approximate value would be greatly appreciated.

The blade definitely resembles an Edgar T Ward fan blade.

Apparently So did Stromberg Carlson... Seeing as it was an American Company who manufactured radios and TVs back in the 1930s-1950s.  :wondering: :shock:

1938 - Edgar T. Ward blades, I cannot tell if this fan had the Ward motor enclosure, but it looks like it might have: 


                                                                                                  

1939 - R&M Propellaire blades

1946 - R&M with Ward blades - 
                                                                                                1946 - R&M with Ward blades -
