Seller: scraphappymomof4 (10) 91.7%, Location: Pleasant Hill, Missouri, Ships to: US, Item: 352769163905 This is an antique Violet Ray High Frequency Ozone Health Generator. These were made starting in the 1920's, I have no way of knowing what year this one is. This is an estate sale find- there wasn't any info included with it, but I looked up Renulife and found some information that I have printed out and will include. The Model R was the most expensive of the generators, at $75.00- which during the early to mid 1900's was an impressive amount of money! Very interesting piece for the medical device collector! This was very popular in it's day, but now is considered "quack medicine". Here is the description from a museum listing that I found: "Electrical medical devices like this one were popular for decades among physicians, irregular practitioners, and home users, who could purchase them through catalogs and drugstores. The machine plugs into an electrical wall outlet. A glass electrode plugs into the wand, produces a violet glow, and delivers a spark when touched to the skin. The strength of the spark, controlled by the voltage selector, ranges from mild to quite intense. Attachments could stimulate many body parts. The attachments for this model were labeled surface/general body, external throat, internal throat, single eye/nipple, rake comb, large body, spinal, fulguration/cauterizing, general metal electrode, and rectal/prostate. The operator can change the output either to violet ray or to ozone (to be used with an optional ozone generating attachment for inhalation). The operator can also select either external or internal use." I have taken as many photos as Ebay would allow, please look carefully and ask any questions before end of auction. I will try my best to answer them! The case and machine are in remarkable shape, for their age. The machine is missing a couple of glass electrodes it appears, and the mouth breathing device that goes on the end of the cord (cord for it is included- see photos), otherwise, I believe it to be complete. The mouth breathing piece is for using the ozone setting, from what I have read about it, but I am certainly not an expert! This will come to you meticulously packed and insured. I will have it packaged to insure that it is well insulated and doesn't get damaged in shipping. If shipping isn't as much as I quoted, I will Paypal back the difference. I try to be very fair and don't intend to make money off of shipping amounts. Thank you for looking at our auctions! Featured Refinements: Violet Ray- Model R, Maker: Renulife
