Does anyone have any information, or have ever seen one of these unusual ceiling fans?   A friend of mine recently acquired one and I have never seen one.  it is a very heavy, (all metal) four bladed fan.  I'm not sure what the round metal pieces are on the sides and wonder if its missing covers.  There are two light fixtures on the sides.   I didn't get a good look at the motor.  If you have any information let me know.  Thanks!

Have you ever seen a Guth with a 4 wing blade?

Your friend found a nice one, Marvin!  Warren Kernall, a founding member from St Louis, Southside Electric, was fond of the Guth fans, because his Dad worked for Mr. Guth and company during the depression years.
Are you going to Tulsa by any chance, Marvin?

Thanks for all the information everyone!  Especially you Mike, the link had a lot of information.  I'm sure that's what it is, the picture and blades look just like it.  Thanks again.
