    This one is a bit unusual for a 1950s fan as the blades have been painted to match the rest of the fan.
    Anyway this appears to be another drug store fan. Made by Superior Elect Prod Corp made in Cape Giradeau, MO from what I can see on another one I see online. This one has no other information than the SuperLectric decal on the fan hub. Possibly a Bersted product although he was based in Ohio.
    Back to some specifics this is a single speed non oscillating fan with an all pressed steel base and motor housing. That and bullet style of the motor housing is making me think circa 1955.

      This is such a great shade of green screams industrial.

      Thank you very much Caperkid. I really like the color on this one even the blades have the same color.

      i can hear exactly what this sounds like and even smell what it smells like - remembering those days from my childhood!
