Antique Surgical Kit
by J.Weiss & Son
Superb 19th Century surgical kit, believed to be an Optical set. The set comes in its original case with purple velvet lined interior and a fitted tray for the instruments. In the top tray are 12 various instruments, 10 of which have ivorine handles and 2 of which have black handles. Some are marked 'Weiss' and some are marked 'Maw. London'. This tray lifts out and below this are another 3 instruments. The lining in the lid lifts up to reveal another fitted section which holds two pairs of small scissors.
The whole set is in good condition for its age. It is not complete but has retained a good number of original instruments which are all in good condition. There is some light tarnishing on metal parts and some general signs of light wear. The interior of the case is clean and tidy with minimal marks on the velvet lining. The outer of the case is in good condition with no major damage and just some light scuffs.
Case : 7" (18cm) square by 2" (5cm) high
