Kenmore attachments

In general these were used on deluxe canisters(& central vac)from early 60s until 1984.
In late 50s when they were newly designed thew would have a 'K' in place of the later 'SEARS'.
The triangle dust brush is about 1963.
The upholstery nozzle would be on standard model or possibly hand vac.
the crevice tool was first made to slide into the slot at side of built in tool caddy about mid 60s.
The tan bumper on the rug nozzle dates it to early 60s.The rug nozzle would continue with few changes into the 80s.
The 'Kenmore'dust brush with swivel is the newest.
This set of attachments with different or no label would later be used on other central vacs.

Always helpful to know so I can "marry" them to the right vacuum.

That floor brush was pretty nice - center brush strip and felt around the outside.

Is that rug nozzle metal? I know they made that in plastic during the 80s and 90s, I even recall seeing them still available new at Sears in gray plastic just a few years back.

Sears rug nozzle

That rug tool design goes back to the 40s believe it or not, It has been every color and polished aluminum and plastic.
