This is a nice Vintage Art Deco General Electric Vortalex Floor Pedestal Oscillating Fan, Model: FM12M11. It has a working variable speed control system. RARE piece and is in decent working condition (considering its age).
I had the cord replaced with a "new vintage" electrical cord as the. The new cord is a brown/black braided fabric wrapped cord (which matches the fan perfectly)!
The 4 original screws that hold the bottom plate on were also replaced as they were rusted. Base is 16 in diameter, it is 48" high and will adjust up to 68 in height, the fan cage is 14 in wide, each blade (4) measures 5". Exactly as shown in the pics. The oscillating function does work but will need some adjusting for continual oscillating. Identification plate states as follows (can be see in pic as well).
