Plastic surgery for those of limited means or a Zello Punkt nose shaper. Devices of this type saw a period of popularity in the early decades of the 20th century–see link that follows While the Zello Punkt is German, and patented in 1894, it had its French, UK and US counterparts. The example on offer retains the wrench sold with it to adjust pressure on the areas of the nose felt to be in need of correction.
While this one is sold we have another similar instrument for sale on Fleaglass. See link that follows. You may have to cut and paste.
