A brass, metal and glass vaporizer with a spout.

Also, because of its unique nature as a psychopathic or mental hospital, staff at Pine Rest have used a variety of tools to treat their patients rarely seen at more conventional hospitals. Many of the artifacts in this collection reflect these unique approaches to treatment. Further information can be found in the accompanying Pine Rest archival collection.;Maker name is not legible.;The items in this accession were donated to the Grand Rapids Public Museum following Pine Rest's 100th Anniversary. The staff and volunteers at Pine Rest gathered together hundreds of artifacts, documents, and photographs from their century-long history for the anniversary celebration in 2010. Following those events, Museum staff visited Pine Rest several times, and in consultation with the Pine Rest staff and volunteers, collected over a hundred items that will help tell their stories. The collected artifacts are cataloged individually in this database, while the photographs, documents, and other printed material are described in the finding aid for the Grand Rapids Public Museum's Archival Collection #229.
