A fantastic & gruesome collection of Antique & Vintage Medical Obstetric Instruments. A medical kit once used for obstetrics and fetal destruction. As caesarean section became safer and more common with the advent of anesthetics and antiseptic techniques, the use of these gruesome instruments diminished. All instruments in the pictures are included in this collection. Among them are various clamps, scalpels, a biopsy curette and scraper, skin retractor, suture clips & needles, operating knives, vaginal depressor, bone hook, towel clips and bone gouge forceps. Steel case measures 20.5 x 10.5 x 5cms. Hand & torso used for scale only.
