“SUCH NOSE ERRORS and similar will be quite significantly improved with the orthopedic nose former “Zello”.  The new and improved Model 20 exceeds all others.  Double-layered padding clings exactly to the anatomical structure of the nose so that the affected nasal cartilage is normal-shaped in a short time.  (Bone deformities are not.)  Most warmly recommended by Royal Court Advisor Dr. G. von Eck, M.D. and other medical authorities.  100,000 “Zello” in use.  Price 5 Marks, 7 Marks, and 10 Marks and a 10% surcharge for a doctor’s visit.  (A model or impression is desired.)  Specialist L. M. Baginski, Berlin W. 126, WInterfeldstr.”
