A fine English (unbranded) fire bleeding and cupping set in an unusual decorative, cylindrical card case with blank name plate c.1860.
Consisting of a 12 bladed scarificator (as new), a large cupping glass, brass three part alcohol torch and a fine cut alcohol bottle, this set has never been used. The lacquer is intact (see photos), the wick never burned, the bottle never filled and the cupping glass never heated. The cylindrical case measures 8 x 4 inches (20 x 10 cm.) and was meant to be carried in a large pocket. Case is flawless with push button latch, decorative end motifs, purple silk liner and secure hinges.
