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.
