Here is a nice Antique French Autopsy Case and Medical Instruments for your buying consideration. Would make a great gift or keep it for yourself!
Wow, something like this offering here does not come to the market very often. Came from a medical party whom was lightening his collection of items. There are two escutcheons on the top of the case, both in French. One translates to "Autopsy Box". The other escutcheon says, " French Co of Help, To the Wounded of the Army of Land and Sea". So appears to be a military piece as well. Also says, "Favre Paris" on the top of the lock.
Lots of nickel plated medical instruments inside the case. Maker name noted on some of the instruments is Favre Paris, so matches up with what engraved on the top of the lock body. Cannot say if the instruments are all there, what you see is what you get. Some minor finish loss in place, but the pieces still look very good.
The wood case on this set is just amazing. The top is still securely attached to the body by the brass hinges. The finger jointing on the corners of the case is just amazing. Some lightening of the finish on the top of the lid. No splits or cracks to the case. Nice tray that can be pulled out by the the brass handles. that then exposes more instruments in the lower level of the case. The lock and escutcheon around the keyhole are in place, no key. The brass latches are in place. The wood case is cut in for the latches to fit into.
An old French newspaper is jammed into the top of the case to protect the case from the instruments in the top removable wood tray with brass pullouts.
The Autopsy Set Case is 2-7/8" tall, by 13-3/8" across, by 7-5/8" wide (with latch). A heavy item here for it's smaller size. Let us know if you have any questions or need additional pictures. Don’t be shy to make an offer, we are always open to reasonable suggestions.
