This Bakelite Ormond electric hairdryer was bought by the donor from a flea market in New Zealand. It was made in Clerkenwell, London, by the Ormond Engineering Company Ltd. The dryer may have been made specifically for export to New Zealand, or taken into the country by someone emigrating from England. The Bakelite vanity case, to contain the hairdryer, has a hinged lid with a rough, textured decorative finish, and a steel clasp.
