"What Is It?" for December 2009
« on: December 21, 2009, 11:43:11 pm »
What is it?


What do you think it is? Alas, I can't tell you the size, because I don't know myself. But it looks like it's housed within what appears to be an attache case of sorts, so it looks portable. I'd guess it's about the size of a brief case.

I will reveal the correct answer shortly after Christmas, early next week.

Have fun!  :D

Thanks for posting one of these Kerry! How fun!!

This is a hard one!

Let's see here... well, I can see some bottles with powders in them.. medicine maybe? And all kinds of various devices and accessories. It looks like some sort of doctor's kit to me.

Now, what kind?

Hmmm....

An enema kit? I think those bellows would be very painful if stuck up someone's *whoo hoo*. :P

I don't know. I think it may be a veterinary kit for cleaning out cow's ears.
Dogs have owners. Cats have staff.

You could very well be right, David. But then again, it is entirely possible that you may be completely wrong  haha!   :laugh:

To give a clue - It would be unlikely to find it still being used these days, though not entirely impossible that some people could possibly still be using it.   ???

I love these, even when I know what they are!  :D

I voted fire bellows, but I am pretty sure that's wrong because of all the extra bits of apparatus. However what's new, I never get these right so why change the habits of a lifetime !

Oh, this is intriguing, Kerry!  I agree with David that the contents of the case have a medical look about them, so I'm also going with the veterinary device for clearing cows ears because it seems more likely than the others!

Thanks!  :)

With all those interesting attachments & medicines could it be a doctors kit
from the 1800's to perform a TURP (Transurethral resection of the prostate)?

My apologies for the delay. I've been away on holiday.

Here is the original, unedited pic emailed to me by a friend recently.

Alas, no-one guessed correctly, so no prizes this time.   :'(
