This delightful occupational image depicts two young men seated at a table. On the table are bottles of presumed medications and on the floor are some newspapers, a hat and a “doctor’s bag”. One young man is holding a pocket watch while he is taking the pulse of his colleague and they both seem to be taking the occasion very seriously. The image is housed in a large dark grey mat and at the top is a pinhole where it may have been hung from a wall. The condition of the image is very good for age although there are some patches of some faint staining and some loss of the surface of the mat at the corners, but the image is crisp and clear. At the back is a printed statement, “The Student Doctors”. This would be a wonderful image to hang in a doctor’s surgery or the room of a young medical student. Overall mount size width 6.5 ins x height 8.75 ins. (16.5cm x 22.5cm). Weight 32 grams.
This item appears in my book ‘How the Watch was Worn, a Fashion for 500 Years” on page 205.
