A rare Tire-Tete, obstetrical destructive instrument, by Charriere
These abortion instruments were used to grasp the inside and the outside of the baby’s head by stabbing one end of the instrument into the cranium. The teeth would grab into the skull allowing for extraction.

Established in 2005 in Italy, Nautilus tries to be a modern wunderkammer, where antique science and natural history meet, inspiring wonder. I mainly love antique scientific and medical instruments, but my interest extends to unusual or rare technologies and natural history.
