A good description:
MAW'S DOUBLE VALVED
EARTHENWARE INHALER 
For the inhalation of vapour of Hot Water, either alone or impregnated with Ether, Chloriform, Henbane, Creosote, Vinegar, etc, in affections of the throat and bronchial tubes, Asthma, Consumption, etc. For this apparatus, is especially adapted for Chloriform, Ether and other active volatile substances, as from its construction the exact quantity required may be inhaled. The lower valve opens only during inhalation, whilest the exhaled breath passes freely from the upper valve, instead of through the vessel, dissipating a large portion of the medicated vapour, as is the case in the use of most other inhalers.
