Bought a non-working fan today as I wanted a Knapp-Monarch fan from this era and it was really cheap. Plus I have enough working fans to power a 747.
I recently IDed a similar fan for a drive by poster who copied my comment for their eBay description but at least the photos were right side up.
In 1935 this fan was $5.40 with no on/off switch. It had only one speed. The cast iron base is very heavy for a fan this size.
It has an interesting cage design which looks a bit like a flower.
