Sims’ “Duck Bill” Vaginal Speculum c. 1852

4.99

“Sims’ speculum elevates the posterior vaginal wall, which allows the entrance of air to distend the whole passage, the woman lying on her side in such a manner that the cavity can be probed with the most perfect ease and applications made to the fundus.  Its use requires the aid of an assistant.”   – Thomas on Diseases of Women.

A rare, early and splendid example of Sims’ second form, unsigned but likely by MAW in a cased set with three graduated, interchangeable silver blades anda common ebony handle in VFC.
