Can anyone confirm that this Canadian "Chapman & Walker" fan with rotary switch was made by Marelli? It is 110V. Thanks.

Thanks. I'm guessing Chapman & Walker put their own nameplates and cages on Marelli fans and sold them as their own

. Here's a closeup of their logo on the cage.

I have a dead match to this fan.  Condition is identical.  I've always assumed it was Marrelli

The baseplate from the Chapman Walker has a large gap between the operating voltage indicated and the CA (alternating current) designation. It almost looks like a number was scratched out. This may not be the case and the plate could've come that way from the factory because a worker might've been having a bad day, but the white markings look a little odd.
Here's a Marelli baseplate from a yolk mount fan ... 1920s. With a dash between upper and lower limits, this is how Marelli designated voltage across a range:

A baseplate from a stationary Marelli with hammerhead switch on base, a similar (but later ... 1920s, I think) model to the Chapman Walker. The single number designating voltage is very close to the indicated frequency.

Nothing scratched off or altered on the bottom plate, so that's the way it was supplied to C&W by Marelli or either C&W added their own plate and/or stenciling. I'm just happy it's 110V.
