A good group of four mid-19th century German obstetrical instruments all maker signed by O. Hornn, working in Leipzig ( see links that follows and note that sometime between 1860 and 1894 his firm was taken over by O. Moecke, also in Leipzig). The metal portions of these instruments are all mat-finish steel. We usually see polished steel or nickel-plating on instruments of this period.
