This is an extremely rare item. So much so that the Hoover Museum in Ohio had their former Director of 45 years look at the item. She had never seen or heard of another like it. Their best estimate is that is was early 1920s. The vacuum depicted appears to be one of the 1920s models based on the style of the vacuum, the broomstick handle and HOOVER spelled out on the bag. All Hoover models up to 1926 used similar bags and a broomstick handle. The M541 model looks almost identical to the sweeper on the bank. This is truly a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for the discerning cast iron / still bank / vacuum collector to own something that nobody else will have. It weighs in at a heavy 1 pound 3 ounces and is 3.5″ tall, 2.75″ wide x 1.5 deep. The item “Early 1920s Cast Iron Hoover Vacuum Cast Iron Bank Rare!
