Hoover was founded in the early 20th century and introduced the world to the revolutionary utility of the vacuum from the company's headquarters in Ohio. It has since become an iconic household name associated with expert engineering in the floor-care industry and has gained recognition for the firm’s significant contributions to the US war production during WWII. This whimsical brooch was designed by David Webb and it is believed that Mr. Earl Hoover gifted the diamond and enamel vacuum to his wife, Miriam, who enjoyed it for many years.
