ANTIQUE CAPITAL SURGICAL BRITISH AMPUTATION SET CIRCA EARLY 1800S

This antique capital surgical amputation set, dating to the early 1800s, is made of lovely English Mahogany with fine brass hardware.

Most instruments are marked with British instrument makers known in the early 1800s.

It is quite common for early 19th century surgical sets to have different instrument makers as the surgeon who bought the set would first but the instruments needed. The surgeon would then go to a craftsman or box-maker to have the instruments boxed. Given all instruments fit the case perfectly, this surgical set would be called original or fully authentic with only the upper upholstery having been replaced as it was tattered.
