1800's Wiegand Sowden Brass Scarificator Obsolete Surgical Blood Letting Tool For Sale

1800's Wiegand Sowden Brass Scarificator Obsolete Surgical Blood Letting Tool

I am disposing of my Great Aunts' estate and will be selling several really nice items from this estate over the next several months. This is an antique scarificator tool. There is no date on the fleam, however the company began business in the early 1800's. The bloodletting is done by pulling back the spring loaded hammer, which is beside the blade/lancet and securing it behind the small pin that you can see from the back. This cocks the hammer. When you place the lancet against the skin, and push the long brass handle on the front, the small pin drops back and the lancet springs forward cutting the skin. Bloodletting was believed to rid the body of bad blood, causing fresh blood to be made.These were often used during the time of the Civil War. The instrument is in good working order, with the spring, blade and original case intact. It measures 2-inches long. There is no damage to the piece, however there is a small chip on the blade. I did not attempt to clean or shine the item, the new owner can take care of that. I don't know if it had a back or not, but this is how it was found. The case is original to the fleam and has wear. The hinges and clasp are intact. A very nice addition to your collection. Thanks for viewing my site. OUTSIDE OF THE U.S.A. - Please ask for shipping quote before offerding. I will not honor the listed shipping for shipping outside of the United States.
