You would think that in this day and age, with all the information available, research on any particular subject would be easy. Well, that is what I thought until I tried to research this Coiffurette hair dryer manufactured by the General Manufacturing Company of Dayton, Ohio.
But wait, the dryer says "Patent Applied for." Great, I'll search the US patents. Well, I'm guessing they never received the patent because all of my searches came up empty.
This dryer is a part of my personal collection of items made in Dayton over the years. It is from the 1940s and, like many hair dryers, has a hot/cold switch. And wow is this thing every heavy! I sure would hate holding this up for an extended period of time to dry hair...luckily, that's not something I need to worry about!
So, today we present this Coiffurette hair dryer manufactured by the General Manufacturing Company of Dayton, Ohio. If you know anything about the company, their other products, or its owners, please share.
