Hello, I'm new to this forum and hobby so please forgive my ignorance. I'm a young carpenter/ furniture builder by trade and I do the occasional restoration project in my free time and yesterday I found my next project. A seemingly old Chelsea brand industrial pedestal fan with a century electric motor. I've been combing the internet and I can find hardly anything on the company themselves other than they were bought out at some point my Airmaster. I can't find a year, where the factory was actually located (I've seen some sites mention Jackson, MI Jackson, MT or even NJ. This fan really caught my eye as soon as I saw it and I'm dissatisfied with how little info I have been able to find. Any information anyone could provide me with would be greatly appreciated. 
Thank you.

The motor tag indicates Chelsea is made in new Jersey, the motor was made by Century Electric located in St. Louis, Missouri and provided to Chelsea for their circulator pedestal fan. I would guess your fan is from the 70's, it has an federally regulated OSHA safety cage on it. Chelsea made all kinds of air movers: From 1953
1966 -
