We're wondering why this product, the Model 25 Nose Shaper, never really took off. Especially since the ad for it from 1930 promises "to improve the shape of your nose by remodeling the cartilage and fleshy parts, quickly, safely, and painlessly." Oh, and the device can be worn night or day, so even if it doesn't work fixing your nose, it can hide the ugly one you already have. (Click tag to view full-size ad.) [Modern Mechanix]
