UPDATE FROM ANOTHER USER:
Hi, your fan is a 1907 model. Ge fans for many years had the 1901 patent date on their motor tag but that's only a patent feature that was included on many GE fans. Your's looks to be a nice and original one but the plug is much newer as these fans came with a screw-in plug to the late teens since there were no wall outlets. The fan "plug" screwed into a light socket. Someone will end up with a nice fan it looks like.
