A good example of Collins’ portable laryngoscope lamp. The 1889 Tiemann Armanetarium describes and illustrates this lamp . They catalog it as “Collins’ Lamp” in the section on “Laryngoscope and Accessories” (fig. 2447 on p.261) and the example we are offering was in fact made by Collin & Cie. We believe it used benzilone rather than alcohol. Nicely made with near-all of its nickel-plating intact. Some minor smoke staining on and near chimney. Height: 6.75″ or 17cm approx.
