Description

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.
