    I bought this for $40 today. Does anyone know what year it from? I know it is an object but can't think of fashion without hair styles.

    I would have thought it earlier because the lines are so Art Deco?

    Nice find, Linda. I had a wonderful Helene Curtis hairdryer all chrome model years ago that I found being trashed in the laneway where I was living. We could not fit it into the truck when we moved, left that behind and a ski workout machine. Wish I still had that hairdryer!

    This is all I can find. MJ, I passed one a few years back and I regretted it. This one I was going to get. I love those beautiful lines and big tall wheels. To me, it looks like the Empire State Building!

    I am including some images I found while trying to figure the age of my dryer.

    The patent number was granted May 1932 so it can't be before that, and expired 1949, so it can't be after that... I see a very Buck Rogers look to it, so I would have guessed mid 30s up to start of WWII.

    Thanks MJ. I am saving to have the mid-century sectional reupholstered.

    There is definitely a moon/space theme going on in my living room. Those framed photos are actually 'Apollo - "First Manned Lunar Landing" NASA Picture set No. 4'
