A bit of an enigma to us as we had not encountered such before we uncovered this ARNOLD & SONS London marked instrument in a small cash of Civil War and earlier medical / surgical instruments, our familiarity with the maker and Confederate use of their wares by way of blockade runner meant we’d have to take it home. While we have not been able to locate another for study and comparison we were successful in acquiring an image of the torturous looking thing from a period Arnold & Sons instrument catalogue. Aside from dimensions and construction information our photos will likely offer the best description. This and an appreciation of the 19th surgeon’s emphasis on speed when accomplishing field bite the bullet amputation, leaves little to the imagination. Surely faster than a surgical saw, one would think splintering would have been an issue and likely the reason the later would have been preferred to this instrument.
Measuring approximately 17 inches in total length this 7/8 inch thick instrument is fashioned from now darkly patinaed surgical steel blade component and mated receiver, each constructed with a stoutly tapered integral 12 inch arm. Each of the two pivoting steel components is sandwiched between slabbed rosewood held firm with heavy iron pins. All components remain solid and in pleasing condition with an eye appealing age and good evidence of period use.
Buy with confidence! We are pleased to offer a no questions asked three day inspection with return as purchased on direct sales! Just send us a courtesy e-mail to let us know your item will be returned per these provisions and your purchase price will be refunded accordingly. Thanks for visiting Gunsight Antiques!
