A better quality, heavy duty beauty salon professional hair dryer by Kenmore Sears Roebuck, made in the USA, model number 625-61390, circa 1950s. The heavy weighted base and cone dryer hood are enameled steel. The chromed steel pole is adjustable from 47 to 58 inches in height (top of the dryer hood). The hood tilts fully and there is a hanging control dial so both the stylist and customer can adjust the temperature settings (cold, warm, hot) or turn the dryer on and off without having to reach around or get up.
The base measures 14 inches diameter. The dryer hood is 16 inches high by about 10-1/2" diameter at the opening. The unit is in excellent vintage condition, clean with no dents or dings and little finish wear. The fan and heat controls work fine, though the dryer takes a couple of minutes to reach full heat output on the HOT setting. Weighs 22 pounds before packaging and boxing.
