Anaesthesia mask (a) and attachment (b); both components are largely comprised of solid, smooth, metal wires; the mask (a) is a circular frame with a looped arm at one end; four thinner wires are attached to each side of the frame, so that they intersect at a midpoint; several fabric threades tie the wires together at the midpoint; the frame tapers at one end to form the looped arm; a thin band of metal holds the wires together, and they separate at the other end of this band and form a loop; a small, round, solid metal rod extends from the outer surface of this band, and is capped by a metal button; attachment (b) joins the mask by this button; (b) is composed of one thin round wire; it is roughly the same size and shape as the frame of (a); the metal arm extending from (b) is much shorter than the arm of (a); it extends only as far as the button on the mask, and there is no flat band of metal joining its wires.
