Description

    Herbert Hoover: The Iconic "Clean Sweep" Vacuum Cleaner Button, One of the Signature Items in the Berman Collection. Clearly inspired by the ubiquitous Hoover-brand vacuum cleaner, but what a clever design! We know of only one other example, which may be "lost" to the hobby. There are some very minor light fox marks along the edge from 4:30-6:00, but- as the photo shows- the button displays beautifully. Given its near unique stature and desirability, even a condition-conscious specialist should not find this trivial flaw to be an issue. A relatively large oval pinback, it measures 1.625" x 1.25". The name of the obscure manufacturer, "Dunkinfield Seattle" is stamped on the metal back.

    Today I received the catalog which is a work of art unto itself. When I found my lot I was literally blown away by what Craig had done with the presentation....... quite amazing to say the least!
