My dad had this in his barn for years, was a sky blue color originally.  I cleaned up and painted as it is now but there were/are no model or maker tags or identification on it.  Anyone know what it is?

It's a 60W1 based on the grille behind the blade, originally a window fan.

Thx.  This is pretty big for a window fan.  I think I am missing some parts...base, switch, ?
Any thoughts on age....50's, 60's...?

You are missing the front grille and the entire turn-about housing. It was a pretty large window fan indeed, but not the biggest in terms of blade span. These fans were the largest of the "traditional style" vornado blade and shroud design but they definitely made larger fans. Age is approximately early 50's but that's basically impossible to tell without the data tag which I'm sure by this point in time, is long gone. They also made a pedestal version of this fan, but never a table version as far as I know.

Picture of the fan below. I have one but this one is not mine and belongs to another collector.
