Description
Plastic face mask for use with inhaler, in carton with instructions, by Rybar Laboratories Ltd., England
The plastic face mask, (A640093) shown on the left, was used in conjunction with an "atomising" inhaler, (A640094) seen as the bulbous plastic device on the right. Together they treated asthma and other lung diseases by the process of inhalation. Its manufacturers referred to the mask as a "nosepiece attachment" for children or persons with "deformed noses". Both items came separately boxed with instructions. The inhaler produced a very fine spray. This was inhaled via the face mask placed over the nose and month. The face mask and inhaler were made by British pharmaceutical manufacturer Rybar Laboratories Limited between 1941 and 1967.
