A very rare George III Lancet or Surgeons Case made in Birmingham in 1830 by Joseph Taylor


The large, slightly tapering, case is decoarted with wide bands of basket weave designs and horizontal prick dot bands. The hinged cover opens up to reveal six compartments, each containing a steel knife, with swivelling tortoiseshell covers. This is the first time we have seen a case which still has all of its original knives. All pieces are in excellent condition. A very rare item, which must have been owned by a very wealthy Doctor.
