Very Rare and Important 1910 Drager Smoke Mask

About

I almost never sell items from my museum collection. Here is your opportunity to get your hands on one of the rarest examples I own. It's not only a surviving example of the very beginning of gas and rescue Apparatus, it has a striking sculptural presence as well. The face plate is Mica. Drager smoke rescue mask The Apparatus pictured, devised in 1910 by the Drager Company of Germany, operated in a similar way as the Siebe-Gorman self-contained devices. Draeger breathing devices and other safety equipment grew so popular in the mine rescue business that the word "draegerman" eventually became a synonym for an underground rescue worker.
