THE 1939 ELECTROLUX
MODEL XXX

(Page Two)

 


 


Dusting brush, crevice tool, upholstery nozzle.

 


As with the bare-floor brush, the top part of the dusting brush is made of chromed steel instead of aluminum.

 


Sprayer (which bears the Electrolux logo on the glass jar, but I didn't realize when I took the photo that it was turned the wrong way) and the Vaporizer. Note that these both came in their original boxes.

 


Suction control regulator on "high" (most powerful) setting.

 


Suction control regulator on "low" (mildest setting).

 


Original hose, in marvelous condition.

 


Note the different way the hose is affixed to the handle, and also the smoother, more tapered shape of the handle.

 


Brand-new filter.

 


Blower end - note the longer shape, and also that it is made of polished aluminum instead of chromed-steel.

 


Filter removed. It's a little dirty but not as bad as it looks.
