Research Facts
Collected by Maryanne Szuck and sister Alice Roeder, a retired nurse. The large collection was made up of invalid feeders, hot water bottles, and urinals.
Initially in the early 19th century, eye bath cups had a small foot and circular basin to rinse solution in the eye. The shape eventually evolved to become wider and better suited for the eye. These eye baths were usually made out of silver and silver gilt. Later, as they became more popular they began to be mass produced out of glass, which was much cheaper to produce than metals by the mid to late 19th century. The glass was clear, but also could be coloured green, orange, and most commonly cobalt blue. The blue colour in this particular case derives from cobalt ore, and has been used since medieval times to colour glass for stained glass, and even dating back to antiquity was used for ceramics.

Research Facts
Collected by Maryanne Szuck and sister Alice Roeder, a retired nurse. The collection consists of various eras and types of invalid / infant feeders, infant milk bottles, medicine spoons, urinals and reference material.
By the early 19th century medicinal spoons were becoming more accurate measuring devices. Normally made out of silver, or pewter these items usually had a cover and long spout for blowing the medicine through at the opposite end for administering medicine to the mentally unstable, elderly and invalids. By the mid 19th century, the design had evolved into small oval spoons, with a partial cover. The delicate handles normally had an elongated portion at the base to stabilize the spoon on flat surface. Initially produced in porcelain, these elaborately decorated spoons were then produced en masse in earthenware ceramic material and transfer pattern prints. This cheaper production cost meant this design was widely accessible and very popular for most social classes.
These were also used to feed infants or dose medicine.
