An extremely rare example of a ” KOOLAIRE: The Scientific Head Cooler”. This c1920s American quack device was sold as:  “A natural remedy for headache, pressure or congestion in the head, mental fatigue,etc. Increases mental perseverance. Used in athletic sports ,it increases the endurance and efficiency of tennis players, runners, bicycle riders, etc”. The metal appears to be aluminum. Instructions have been lost  but presumably it was put in an ice box or refrigerator  and then placed on the head while cold.  It is in very good condition and retains its original labeled box.
