A weird cased trepanning instrument/tool. It concerns of six trepan instruments and a screwdriver. The screwdriver is to loosen nut from bolt so that the instruments can be used separately. The set consists of a two toothed elevators, a lenticular, a scalpel, perforator and a foliate bore. All the seven instruments are signed with “Massarotti E Bianco”.
