'Paragon' reusable rubber condom, London, England, 1948-1950
This ‘Paragon’ reusable medium-sized rubber condom was made by Georges (Chemists) Limited, London. It is in its original box with instructions. The condom had to be washed, dusted with preserving powder and dried flat after use. The maker suggested the condom was less likely to split causing unwanted pregnancy because it was made from a solid piece of seamless rubber. It advertised a range of contraceptive devices available by post in discreet packaging.
