I believe that's called the G.E.Tidy. I don't remember the model number; G.E.'s numbers are always long. AVG-2323345235446532392 or something like that! Cute little machine.

Looks to be a (I *believe*) 1940s GE Tidy. Dont quote me on the age, though.

I think Dave has one of those with the attachments. Yup he does... he brought it over one day.
Different handle though

Hey Zach:

That looks like an AVT 160A from 1947. A friend in Florida sent me one for my collection a few years back.

Just remembered, I have the same Compact as in that picture.

Nice Vac! That was the fore-runner to the GE/Premier Vac-Kit of the 30's, I believe, that has been on The Forum not too long ago! (The earlier ones were a round TANK as opposed to the GE Tidy being essentially square.) They're fun!
