It's not hard to imagine Morticia Addams or Lily Munster getting their hair done at a salon featuring this decidedly spooky machine produced by Veeco. Veeco is a company that has been manufacturing and selling salon equipment since 1927, first as C&W and then after WWII as Veeco.
The style and solid metal construction of this large hooded hairdryer would place it as an early product of Veeco. Though probably not suitable to be used for hair care today, with a little imagination it could be turned into a funky lamp for daily use.
If the odd or unusual vintage item catches your eye, don't be afraid to think about imaginative ways in which to put it to use as part of your decor.
The host or hostess of a Halloween party could easily use this item as a prop, perhaps setting a mannequin holding a bowl of candy underneath it. What a great conversation starter that would be!
