More good guesses, and I can see the thinking, but wrong again.

However, if you chose another orifice (ooer, Missus!) in the facial area, you'd be closer.

Wrong. I think that post was edited after I had replied.

No, but I'll tell you now.

It's a Boots Glass Nasal Douche, made by Regaid - still yuk though! :-X

I'll post a picture of the box later.

(but drosophila melanogaster would get through a 7mm gap  :angel: )
I stand corrected. Interesting to know that a mouse can squeeze through a gap no wider than a pencil...

Ummmm drosophila are fruit flies not mice... I have an American penfriend who studied these in great detail many years ago and the name has always stuck with me... having said that mice can get into some very small gaps for sure!

Interesting item though David... I wonder how big a seller it was...? Any idea of its age...?

Erm, yes, I know the difference between flies and mice - I was just expanding on the theme of how animals can squeeze through remarkably narrow spaces. Ferrets were used at the 1953 Coronation, for example, to lay the TV cables and minimise disruption to Westminster Cathedral.

The box is in remarkable condition, but possibly 1950s? I'll just set up the camera and post a piccy.

Here's a photo of the glass, box and instructions. As usual, I do have a penchant for the weird! The price on the box appears to be 9½d, pencilled in at the top-right corner. No idea on age, but I do know the Boots archivist, so I'll see if she can advise.

Hmm, perhaps it should be called a Douche-hound? ;D

David, there's an earlier-looking boxed one in Google cache from eBay.ie HERE - added for interest as the shape is slightly different to yours.
