Thanks for the images.  I have recently purchased and received today :clap::clap::clap: a 1903 early pancake fan.  It's a fully ribbed base, 4 strut cage with 10 wires, trunion, 12" four wing fan.  It was the highest on my list because I want to restore it as an honor to my Grandmother who meant the world to me and told me all the great stories of growing up during the age of wonder that she got to live.  
Once I get a camera I will post it.  It appears in pretty good shape as far as all the important parts.  Although cosmetically it has some issues of superficial rust on the iron.  It runs and seems very quiet.  The only issues I can see right now is that it is missing 2 acorn nuts and on the top there is a screw missing that sits over the oil cup.  
I cannot wait to get that camera cord so I can post pictures.:pissed:pissed
