I recently won an auction for the inventory from a defunct repair shop that worked on small engines and janitorial machinery. Most of it is labeled but there are a few items that have me scratching my head.

Attached is a pic of a cloth bag for an upright. The logo looks like a tornado but I am not familiar with Tornado using that logo. The styling and color looks 50s or 60s...but that's just me wildly guessing.

Any ideas what this might pair with? If you think you can use it, shoot me an offer. I don't think I have a use for it other than eBay.

Not sure if this helps but Hunter Green (that deep green color) was very popular in the mid 90's on everything from cars to wallpaper to office supplies to kitchen countertops. It looks exactly like the Hoover Windtunnel tornado logo, but I never seen a bagged version, and some digging around in Google Images gives no leads.

It looks like it may be from an old German Vorwerk vacuum. They used soft green bags. Or maybe from a similar European company like Progress or Tornado. Can our friends in Europe help out here?
