A surgical trepan signed by Bogner in Strasbourg and dated between 1800 and 1820. It also bears his cloverleaf cuttler’s hallmark.
The instrument is constructed of steel, ebony and ivory.
Bogner is, with Lichtemberger, the best manufacturer of surgical instruments from the end of the 18th century-beginning of the 19th century in eastern France.
The usual handle was formerly modified by a particular round ivory grip, elegant and, in use, very practical.
The instrument measures 34cm in length.
