Estimated Date: 1920
Name: Vigoradium Device
Manufacturer: unknown

Description: 18” high with porcelin base, which is designed like a heater but holds a porcelain cup. There is a rod to open and close the spigate in the hollow in the base. The clear glass lantern like top is embossed as above. It tapers from about 6” to 4”. There is a metal top held on by a spigate and rods. Inside is a glass rod, which must have held the radium. This may not have ever been produced commercially. I acquired it from a relative of the inventor.
