Can anyone tell me about this item. I found it in a dresser. It works great and has a date on it of June 1, 1875. Is it an old toy?

    Here is one that sold
    It appears to be a toy to me ,the person could hold the bottle and make it the little Imp doll like figure inside jump if hands were warmer than blood . No scientific reason other than a chemistry test .
    But apparently are collectible !

    Wow, manikin! Good call. I love the old medical gizmos, especially the quackery things.
