Research Facts
An epilator is an electrical device used to remove hair by mechanically grasping multiple hairs simultaneously and pulling them out. The way in which epilators pull out hair is similar to waxing, although unlike waxing, they do not remove cells from the epithelium of the epidermis.

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.
