I like its thirties styling! 
Maybe Dominion borrowed a blade design?

What I am not sure of is how long United Electric continued manufacturing fans 1936 forward under Bersted's ownership sporting the United Electric name. 

This is one of the few example I have seen with the decal and paint stamped information still reasonably intact. This model has a 10" blade and runs quite well.


I believe the Electrex trademark name was marketed under Rexall Drug.

Glad you liked it.  Sorry the video cut off abruptly, that is because the camera for some reason shuts off around a certain amount of time. This is because I don't know when to shut up, so the camera gets tired of listening to me, it does you and the world a favor, and shuts down.  :D
