This may be a respirator, but it is not a Jeffreys respirator. There's an image of a Jeffreys respirator at:http://johnsnow.matrix.msu.edu/work.php?id=15-78-188and there's more detail at:http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Julius_JeffreysThe British Museum has two Jeffreys respirators. The Jeffreys respitators have multiple grilles of very fine wires running vertically. Early versions have a light cloth covering, and later versions have a kind of louvred front. The boxes are crescent moon shaped.
I'm a collector, I recently picked up a tin case for a Jeffreys respirator. It's a slightly different shape than the one illustrated but is marked as being such. I was just looking for more information on them. Should I contact the Country Doctor Museum? I can be reached at Woodardm09@ECU.edu
