Vacuum cleaner, Premier Electric, Made in USA.

This appears to be the model of Premier Electric vacuum cleaner advertised in The Argus, Melbourne, on 24 May 1926. The advertisement boasted that its 'rubber-shod, small, free-running wheels cannot possibly harm your carpets. Its suction-brush action removes all dirt, dust, litter - even pieces of cotton - from your floors and upholstered furniture from your shelves, picture rails, mattresses, and clothing. Unlike many cleaners, the "PREMIER" does not depend upon suction alone. Because of its patented suction-brush action it brushes and sucks simultaneously.' It was advertised for sale at £12/10-.

Physical Description
