Soupart’s Forceps & Needle Holder

4.99


An exceedingly rare and likely unique pair of Soupart’s instruments finely crafted from German silver, un-plated steel, with bulbous/octagonal ivory handles, decorative silver ferrules, decorative thumb levers and sliding catches.  Nearly identical examples are illustrated and described in Soupart’s article in the Bulletin de l’ Academie de Medicine, Belgique, Vol. VI, 1863., unmarked and in VGC noting patina on steel and stable cracks in the ivory commensurate with age.
