Description

eBay item number:
260784395345
Seller assumes all responsibility for this listing.


Up for sale is a rare 1920's Stoneware water cooler called the Revigator. This was a piece of Medical quackery used for good health. The inside was coated with Radium Ore making it slightly radioactive. The radioactivity is minimal and the crock is safe to sell, and to own.

Intended to add radioactivity to drinking water.

Advertised by the company as "an original radium ore patented water crock," 

As a company brochure stated, "Results overcome doubts." "The millions of tiny rays that are continuously given off by this ore penetrate the water and form this great HEALTH ELEMENT--RADIO-ACTIVITY. All the next day the family is provided with two gallons of real, healthful radioactive water . . . nature's way to health."

This Stoneware piece is in excellent working condition. No cracks, chips or repairs. The spigot works great with the original rubber gasket still water tight. The cobalt blue writing on the crock is clear and bright. Check pictures carefully, I have not seen a nicer example on Ebay in a long time. Stands approx. 1 foot tall. Get a great piece of rare Medical quackery. Please ask questions prior to bidding, thanks for looking.
