The Trados Nose Shaper
An odd advertisement that I noticed while browsing through a 1916 journal, Current Opinion
, on Google Books. It's for the "Trados" Nose-Shaper. The blurb tells us:
Upon the impression you constantly make rests the failure or success of your life. Which is to be your ultimate destiny? My new nose-shaper "Trados" (Model 22) corrects now ill-shaped noses without operation quickly, safely and permanently. Is pleasant and does not interfere with one's daily occupation, being worn at night. Write today for free booklet, which tells you how to correct ill-shaped noses without cost if not satisfactory. M. TRILETY. Face Specialist.
If this was Model 22, I wonder what models 1 through 21 were like?

it looks like it would cause the same problem the eye glasses holder from "the jerk" did.

...corrects now ill-shaped noses without operation quickly, safely and permanently.
From a 1916 journal? I'm sure nose surgery existed but I didn't think nose jobs were really a legitimate option prior to say the 40's.
Well, i just wikied "plastic surgery" and it looks like a lot of plastic surgery advancements started shortly after 1845. Almost all advancements focused on the nose, what with it being in the middle of your face and all. It still looks like nose surgery was an extremely rare occasion in the early 20th century.
