The fan is a circa 1931 GE Quiet Blade. They were made from 1931 to around 1934 when they did a styling change over. They are not very common. That was the only size they came in.
I have one in a Cobalt glass.
No is doesn't, its a stationary model.

It is a Victor, made in the 1940s. The company was out of business by 1950.
