In short, the bottles with metal top attachments would hold the anaesthetic contents. The contents would be vaporised and move through the corrugated tubing to the mask and through to the patient. In terms of what procedures this would have been used for – this could vary greatly. Ethyl Chloride was first discussed as an anaesthetic in 1847 and was popularised as a general anaesthetic in the UK in 1903. As a general anaesthetic, it was used for a range of procedures that require the patient to be unconscious. Trilene (Trichloethylene) was first introduced in the 1930s by Imperial Chemical Industries in Britain. It was popular during WWII due to its flammability and in later years, it was often used on women during labour. The vaporizer bottle with “Trilene” written on it in blue is more modern than the brown bottles. It is likely that this vaporizer would have attached to the back bar of an anaesthetic machine. The MIE LTD stands for Medical & Industrial Equipment Limited, a company which was founded in 1938. Our museum collection has a few items made by MIE Ltd (Medical & Industrial Equipment Limited) which may be of interest to you. Unfortunately, I have not encountered any items with SPICER LONDON engraved so I am unable to provide you with any information on this other than to point out the obvious that it would be associated with the manufacturer. I hope this information is useful to you and helps you to understand your items. Please feel free to contact me should you have any further questions."
