Description

Antique Medical Cobalt Blue Glass Sputum Flask

This is an Antique Medical Cobalt Blue Glass Sputum Flask.
Blue glass sputum bottle, England, 1871–1920. People with tuberculosis used sputum bottles to cough sputum into.

The foul-smelling sputum contains the bacteria responsible for causing the disease. Contact with sputum, coughed up from the lungs, could spread the disease. The blue glass bottle would have been cleaned and disinfected after use. The front of the glass is embossed with a measure ranging from 10cm to 100cm from the bottom.
The flask is complete and in good working order.

It measures about 9cm H X 6.6cm W x 3.7cm D.
