I saw one on ebay recently, have you tried a search? They were made in Cincinnati, right?

Very distinctive cage, with the circles - - looks like a Fresn'd Aire otherwise, the blade, motor, etc.

Yes, that and the hassock fan is what I am looking for. I have one hassock fan (in pretty poor shape) but would like another. Thanks again for sharing..
