Rare 1920s ''Bicycle Horn'' Style Breast Pump

LISTED ON THURSDAY, MARCH 29, 2018 - VIEWED 26 TIMES
These strange looking items were seen as liberating the early 20th century nursing mother .

This particular one was picked up at an Irish Antiques Fair,as to where it is from we are unsure.

They were known as "The breast reliever" as women could pump milk and then store it for later.

This is a 1920s model with the number 3 stamped and raised on the bulb;the hard rubber bulb is worn and cracked on the surface from age more than anything else ,but it still can be squeezed.

The glass body is not cracked and the seal appears to be good although it has not been tested.

The breast pump measures 6" or 15cm in length and it is a solid sturdy item.

It has obviously had lots of use but what a talking piece to add to your collection , a part of medical history.
