Two vintage Art Deco Electrolux Model 30 XXX canister vacuum cleaners in working condition plus the following accessories:

(1) Five hoses
(2) Six extension wand attachments
(3) One metal hard floor attachment w/two replacement brushes
(4) One chrome carpet attachment
(5) One metal upholstery attachment
(6) One plastic upholstery attachment
(7) Five cords
(8) Six cloth shake-out bags
(9) Two extra front guards; one extra rear guard


The blue model is in beautiful condition and has excellent suction. It is the prettiest and nicest one of these I’ve seen!

The gray model could use some restoration and has weaker suction but is still in good working condition with all parts intact. The rubber handle is showing some signs of deterioration and the cord is a little stuck in place. But it still has its original sales tag (if you’re a collector).

The hoses and cords attached to the vacuum cleaners are in good condition while the extra hoses and cords are in fair to good condition. All other parts look to be in very good to great condition.

An excerpt from Antique outings......
Research and development work occurred for four years on a uniquely-American model -- the model XXX (or "30"). In 1937, Electrolux launched the model "30" to country-wide acceptance. The model "30" was sold from 1937 through 1954, making it the longest running single model of any vacuum cleaner EVER. Millions and millions were sold during those years. The design of the tank (designed by Lurelle Guild) itself has become an icon -- the model "30" is now considered to be the highest elevation of the "art" of tank-type vacuum design. A model XXX is displayed in the Smithsonian." There is also one at the Dallas Museum of Modern Art: https://blog.dma.org/tag/access-access-program/

As with any vintage finds, these have wear and tear consistent with their age. There's a little rust on the inside (where the bag goes) of both. And, there are some dings, dents, dirt, and rust spots (mostly on the gray one).

Cash only, please. Viewing by appointment only.
