Categories: Medicine, Surgical instruments


A good late 19th-century physician’s pocket case by Dubois working in Paris. Most instruments are signed and of those all but two are signed by Dubois.  Two are signed “COLLIN”.  Jean-Pierre Martin in the Clystere listing of makers notes that this firm issued a catalog in 1884. Case stands out from the pack  in that it includes a stacked set of trocars, a syringe and a thermometer ( all in engine turned case). The flap on the right has been cut down ( the left side  was made without a flap)–see third image.  Otherwise case is in vg condition.  We’d be happy to provide additional images or information on any  of the instruments.
