A rarely signed French cased trocar made in ebony, silver and steel.
The silver canula bears the hallmark of A.M. Retoré and a second French hallmark. So we can date it from 1827 to 1838.
The trocar is in very good condition preserved in its original cardboard shaped case.
The case measures 16,5×2,8 cm
