A very good cased example of L’Attractif de d’Estanque. Elisabeth Bennion, in ANTIQUE DENTAL INSTRUMENTS, says of this instrument: “An extremely complicated type of pelican with two handles that was designed by Eugene dE’stanque and patented by him in 1861. He illustrated it in L’Union Medicale in 1864 and it was made by Charriere and Mathieu with considerable mechanical skill (1986:38).” This example by Mathieu. The instrument is in excellent condition but the lining in the lid of the case is worn.
