Description
Mottershead & Co / Vi Tan - Antique medical / thermal UV lamp, circa 1920 - metal, glass, wood
Manchester, England - First half 20th century

A medical item, of which I cannot tell you what the device was intended for.

It is a medical device with some kind of UV lamp, probably against pain radiation.

The device was made in Manchester, England by the firm Mottershead & co.

The device comes in a heavy wooden box.
The door can close, but does not close properly, similar with the cover on the back where the cord is in.

Pay particular attention to the special plug of metal and the special glasses, which one should wear when turning on the lamp.

I have put a new cord on the lamp.

We ship packages within Europe only.
