This listing is for a vintage french 1950's medical inhaler. Many respiratory complaints were cured using one of these devices. Hot water and plants or essential oils such as camphor, peppermint or rosemary were added to the bottom pan, and the patient would place his nose and mouth in the top piece and inhale deeply, thus helping with congestion. Both pieces are made of enameled metal and are sky blue with a darker trim. This piece is in good vintage condition, but shows a number of chips in the enamel and a dent on the body. A nice decoration piece but can still probably be used as well (please use your judgement and follow your general practionner's advice ).

aprox. 8 inches high and 4 inches across (10cm by 20 cm)

Please check my store policies for information on combined shipping.
