The Dr. who prescribed this nasal syphon was also the doctor who was charged with aiding and abetting in Canada’s first court case of selling a narcotic without a prescription! The things you learn while trying to date vintage items!
From the Ottawa Journal July 11, 1941:
In the first case of its kind in Canada, Dr.- S. Laird – Alexander was convicted in York – County Police Court of “aiding and abetting” the furnishing of a narcotic drug to a person without a prescription, and was fined $200 by Magistrate Keith. Dr. S. Alexander, pleaded guilty and was given the minimum fine. The case was said by Dr.. Malcolm H. V. Cameron president of the College of Physicians and Surgeons, to be a “test case” in a recent drive of the Narcotics Division to “dam up the sources of supply of drug addicts. An Ottawa official admitted the drive was in progress and that addicts were “active” in procuring drugs through both legal and Illegal channels.  The charge against Dr. Alexander was that he on May 21 did aid, abet counsel or procure F. Snetsinger, a retail druggist,’ to give, sell or furnish a drug to a person without written order Dr prescription,) contrary to Sectlon 8 of the Narcotics Act and Section 60 of the Criminal Code”. The drug in question was diactylmoo-phinc Snetsinger was charged with ‘giving, selling or furnishing a drug to a person without a written order or prescription. He also pleaded, guilty and was fined the minimum, $2OO. Dr. Cameron said that Dr. Alexander was playing golf on May 21 when, he received a telephone call from a parent saying her throat was sore and asking for a remedy Dr. Alexander telephoned a druggist to deliver a particular prescription, which contains a slight amount of the drug. The druggist “refused unless he had a written order, so the doctor telephoned another druggist Mr. Snetsinger, who delivered the medicine. The first druggist informed the police. Dr. Cameron said. An Ottawa official in Toronto said there has been a great deal of trouble In the past six or eight months with drug addicts trying to procure drugs through legal as well as illicit channels and there is a drive to put a stop to it. One of the possible ways of obtaining drugs through legal channels would be to telephone a druggist and imitate the voice of a doctor known to the druggist and procure the narcotics, he said. T. B. Horkins acted for Dr. Alexander, and Cyril Carson acted for Snetsinger. J. C M. German was Crown counsel. “
At one point Dr. S. Laird  Alexander’s son Captain Thomas Laird Alexander was captured by the Nazis.

Vintage Davtex Doll plus all the clothes in the photos. The clothes are vintage as well as handmade. The purple dress is hand crocheted and the other pieces are hand knitted. The purple cardigan fits a little too big and I found that it fit a Ken doll very well. Her hair is a bit of mess and needs some TLC to calm it down. I have not attempted to style it.
Please feel welcome to ask any questions or to request more photos if necessary.
Please inspect all photos for details.

This one is shown on a double bed but would fit a twin or single bed much better. We have included a few retro 1960s advertisements to show how it looks on a proper size bed.

Vintage Germany Pottery Vase by Zeller Keramik. It is black with hand painted colorful flowers. It still has the original stickers on the bottom. One says:

Zeller – Keramik
Kuntzgewerge – Geschenke
Seifert – Singler
7615 Zell Am Harmersbach
 
The other sticker says: V 403 / 20
 
I think it may have been made by the same company that makes the Cock and Hens dishes.

 
No chips on rim. There are a few little spots missing black paint to the right of the front flower scene. They are quite tiny and not that noticeable. Looking down into the inside it appears to have a coiled bottom.
