Antique 2 French Electro Therapy Devices & 34 Institut Electrotherapy& 34 Dated 1905

Antique 2 French Electro Therapy Devices "Institut Electrotherapy" Dated 1905

Of scientific interest two French Electrotherapy devices, both wih plaques to the tops stamped "Institut Electrotherapy, 27 Rue Godot de Mauroy, Paris" Complete with original instructions dated 27th September 1905. These are very good example of early 20th century electrotherapy / electric shock machines. These early battery operated devices produced a noticeable, but low powered, electric current that was applied to various body parts. It was believed that such stimulation could help with a multitude of nervous disorders. These all-in-one units contained a battery, coil, voltage controls and a number of contact probes and connecting wires. These are housed within a sturdy wooden body, with compartment for accessories. The boxes have carry handle and close with clasps. There is age related ware to these items. The effectiveness of these types of devices was unconvincing, and for safety reasons these should not be used. However, they make excellent display pieces and are ideal for collectors. Condition: As antique items, the pieces show signs of use commensurate with age, these condition issues are mentioned for accuracy and, as seen in the accompanying photographs they display beautifully. They are for decorative use only.

Vintage model of a Ferrari Hydroplane 1954 50cm

Vintage model of a Ferrari Hydroplane 1954 50cm

This is a superb Vintage model of a Ferrari Hydroplane 1954. Its cars are adored on all corners of the globe and are seen as the ultimate status symbol for the rich and powerful. But as these incredible pictures show, Ferrari is not just a talented car manufacturer. This astonishing-looking Ferrari speedboat set an unrivalled world record in 1953 and is valued in the millions. The legendary ARNO XI Hydroplane craft was the brainchild of wealthy boat privateer Achille Castoldi who had a desire to break a world water speed record. He persuaded the great Enzo Ferrari to lend knowledge and technical assistance in building the ultimate powerboat. The result was a 12-cylinder, 4,500cc, V12 Ferrari engine - the same as can be found in the Type 375 Grand Prix car.   In October 1953, ARNO XI travelled at 150.2mph on Lake Iseo in northern Italy, setting a world speed record for an 800kg boat that has still never been broken. When Mr Castoldi was finished with ARNO XI, it was sold to Nando dell'Orto, a rich engineer, who went on to race it with great success for more than 10 years, securing numerous wins. The boat went through various aerodynamic improvements during that time, including a modified nose and the addition of a fin. It finished its competitive racing career in 1960 with a European championship victory and numerous fastest laps, many of which still exist.   Condition: In excellent condition, please see photos for confirmation.
