A fine example of“Davis’s 1stor Common or Symmetrical form” forceps of classical proportion,  un-plated and unmarked with smooth ebony handles. They were designed to occupy less pelvic volume and to compress the head evenly to minimize injury.  Its broad blades were lightly wrought of steel with large fenestra and with a concave interior “to lie in close contact to every part of the child’s head”. This particular example was included in a rolled cased set belonging to Lucius P. Culver of Reinersville, Ohio.
