Weiss eyesurgery set containing 12 scalpels
A case of instruments for cataract operation by cutting. The 12 cataract knives are caracterized not only by the delicacy of size and weight of the blade, but also by the small and slender ivory handles. They are all together in the original, yellow velvet lined, case 16 x 11.5 x 2.5cm. The leather on the outside of the case has some wear due to age. Signed on the ivory handles and case; weiss & son, 287 oxfort st, london (1889).
