You are bidding on a 1927 Vintage Halliwell Violet Ray Home Medical Kit, manufactured by Halliwell Electric Company, 305-309 East 2nd Street, New York City. This was a popular quack medical device used in the early 1900's in the belief that it would cure anything from Acne and Hemorrhoids to Diabetes and Cancer. The instruction manual describes the prescribed "treatments" for each ailment. Included are the carrying case, the power supply, three electrodes (1 comb electrode for scalp treatments, 1 facial electrode, and 1 metal electrode), instruction manual, original packing slip dated 2-27 (Feb. 1927). The carrying case is in good condition for 90 + years old. The hinge of the lid is formed merely by the cloth covering of the case, but is still intact and secure, the leather handle is brittling and cracking, but still complete. The interior is a bit silverfish chewed at some of the corners, and the edges of the instructions on the inside of the lid. The instruction manual is in good condition with very mild edge wear and corner curling, light yellowing, no tears or other damage. The original packing slip included is in good conditon with moderate yellowing. The power unit is in good condition and working order. The cord is the original, and still in good condition, just a bit stiff from age. All three electrodes are in working condition, I have tested each one. Photo # 4 shows the comb electrode operating in the dark to hi-light the violet ray color. When held close to the skin, a mild electric arc is produced which can be seen in photo #4 where I am holding my finger near the left lower portion of the electrode to create the arc. A nice working set, a great addition to any medical collection, a great conversation piece. I do combine shipping if you are interested in more than one item. For domestic shipping within the US, you only pay shipping on the first item, additional items are no extra charge. If the checkout does not properly combine the shipping, please request a combined invoice, and I will send a correct invoice for payment, normally within one business day. I will combine international shipping on multiple items for the actual amount of postage only, I do not make any profit on the shipping charge. International shipping can be quite expensive for some of the larger and heavier items, so please contact me for an international combined shipping quote, and I will provide the most economical solution that I can find, which is normally a USPS International Flat Rate Priority package.
