This Victorian earthenware “Improved Inhaler ” is a lovely specimen and comes with original glass mouthpiece and cork lid. Invented by Dr Nelson in the mid-1860s, for the treatment of chest infections and inhalation issues. Imagine being prescribed one of these for your ailments!
The transfer-printed advertisement and instructions for use are clearly printed on the front. It is very quirky; use it as a vase or we can see it in the bathroom or kitchen; it really does make a great statement piece.
18.5 cm Tall
It’s a nice fat one!
