Caption

Vaginal douche by Dr. Eguisier. Douches such as this one, although unreliable, were one of the most common methods of contraception in this era. The cylindrical metal supply vessel has a pump mechanism which controlled the passage of rinsing fluid to the red hose. This apparatus was originally designed by Parisian doctor, Maurice Eguisier (1813-1851). This example is French and dates from around 1900.
