Narrative: An atomizer is a device used to reduce liquid medication to a fine spray or aerosol. Dr. Allen DeVilbiss began marketing medical atomizers in 1890. It was not until around 1907 that the company began on its highly successful plunge into perfume and paint. The company stopped making perfumizers in 1969 but they do continue to use basic technology of the medical atomizer to make one of the popular professional paint guns. Lucky's uncle Eugene (Mrs. Hiltz's son) gave it to Lucky.
