This advertisement was included within the wrapping of this pair of Oktis corset shields and advertises the same ‘zairoid’ metal bones. P&S Corsets (Pretty & Sons) were a major manufacturer of corsets as well as protective products, and appear to have been one of the only licensed European distributors for Warner’s coraline corsets. P&S unfortunately went into liquidation in the 1930s and were bought out by R & W H Symington & Co Ltd.
