Vintage Decora air compressor... Just how Vintage?

New here and hope this is the correct place to post this? I will be getting the Fairbanks 1.5 hp up and running soon and was looking for accessories that I can us with it. I was given this little Decora Mfg. air compressor pump. Looks to be built in Richmand Ca. but when? Any guesses as to the use or age of this little beauty? I hooked it up to a 115v electric motor and it just screams with air volume. I don't think the F.M. will have any issues at all spinning it. I ddid a google search and there are some older Decora compressors out there but I haven't seen anything like this.

I couldnt find that one in a search either, but going strictly by the looks and style of it I would guess circa 1930s.

You did way better than I did Patrick... I couldn't find anything like it anywhere. That Ebay compressor is no doubt the same case. Thanks for the search and reply. I'm guessing 30's as well. I just didn't know if it was an under the hood compressor or a stand alone unit? Either way I kinda like it and will make use of it once again. Thanks for the help. :salute:
