A large and long steel surgical forceps signed “Capron” with its cutler hallmark.

The long clamp was intended either to clamp an inner organ, either to bring some cottons during the operations.

Good condition and very good Parisian signature.

We can date the instrument of the 1840s.

It measures 27.6 cm in length.
