Hoover constellation vacuum cleaner
- Hoover Limited
Hoover constellation vacuum cleaner, circa 1956. A particularly "space age" 1950s vacuum cleaner, noted for its use of exhaust air to make it hover, coupled with a futuristic spherical shape and fashionable colouring, the Constellation is truly a 'design classic' among vacuums. Metal; plastic. Predominantly grey with blue detail.
