shagreen and silver-mounted surgical instrument case
A very nice mid/end 17th century shagreen and silver-mounted surgical instrument case Â with lid and drawer. The case is covered in shagreen and embellished with elaborately cut and engraved silver clasp and hinges. Â Inside, the box and drawer, it is lined with red leather. In my opinion in top condition without instruments. Â Measurements are 17 x 6 x 6 cm.
There is such a unique surgical instrument case in the collection of The Royal College of Surgeons and Wellcome Museum London. It is illustrated by a pictureÂ in Bennion op page 62.
