A Kirby Vacuette is a somewhat rare machine. Are you looking for an electric model or non-electric model? Also, you didn't specify what a 'reasonable' price would be. I have two non-electric models and one electric model. The word 'reasonable' is somewhat ambiguous. If you could narrow it down to actual dollar amounts that you consider reasonable, I'll let you know if I'd be willing to part with any of my Vacuettes.

Electric $50-60 including shipping. The non electric are you meaning preferred 1945 Kirby?
If early models I have never seen one for sale. I could pony up on those. The main vacuette was one that came with heritage 2 I believe maroon color.
Thanks for reply. You can email me at or text 385 209 5942
Thanks les

Hey Lesinutah

I pulled this off an old post.
Is this the critter?

Yes that is the one.
But like I said if you have previous 1945 vacuette that I have never seen for sale would be interested in what it would take to get one. I imagine 500-1000 guessing I do not have that right now but with motivation I could. Thanks again.

A Vacuette is the non-electric cleaner made from 1918 - 1924. An Electric Vacuette was made 1924 - 1928. The Vacuette hand vac by Douglas Corporation from around 1990 is a rehash of an old name "vacuette" on a mediocre plastic hand held vac. I was referring to the vintage models from the 1920's.

Hey Dyson man

If the 90s plastic vacuum is mediocre I really could live without.
The Kirby vacuette you are talking about email pics and prices fair for you and me. There is no reasonable price. These are rarer than rare. So hit me with numbers and stories of how on earth you came across these. Thanks
