Description

A very beautiful double-saw amputation set signed by Theveny in Metz and absolutely complete. 

The set can be dated from the 1830s or early 1840s. The handles are in ebony guilloche or turned ebony. The tourniquet is made of brass. 

All instruments are signed except the tourniquet, the two hooks, the scraper and the file. There is no replacement, all instruments are original. The two saws are signed as well as the four amputation knives and the clamp. 

We can underlined the two double-edged interosseous knives and the imposing 34,5 cm lenght of the two larger knives (one with a single Liston blade and the second one with a double blade). 

The amputation set with two saws are rare, particularly in such fine condition. 

 

The only defects are two small cracks in the two handles of the saws (clearly visible on the photos) and low oxidations on the blades of two knives and the frame of the largest saw (also visible on the photos). 

However the whole is in a perfect and superb state of preservation. 

The walnut box with ivory eyepiece measures 47x17x9,5 cm. 

The original key is always present although rusty. 

 

Rare complet set by a renowned French cutler with high quality workmanship.
