Bryant brass porcelain FUSED plugs were introduced......?  The earliest I am aware of a Bryant wooden handle attachment plug is 92. Bryant fused or wooden handle with Edison base are more common to find. Westy and Thomson-Houston base are rare.  You can also take a base from a Westy base broken filament or damaged bulb(lamp) and whittle your own wooden handle, paint it, and slap it together and call it the real deal.  :D

Ron, Do you have a good reckoning of that fan's date of birth? Considering the variety of socket offerings and changes to them over time--- looking at Russ' pics-- it might be pertinent to a complementary match...




 1888 Sockets





1893 Sockets





1896 Sockets




Et Cetera.....
