1900s Tiemann Glass Syringe in Box
For your consideration:
Antique Early 1900s Tiemann Glass Syringe in Original Wood.
Missing the needles.
Tiemann & Co. has had a wide assortment of marks, this particular one with "G. Tiemann & Co." on box, "Tiemann & Co." without the "G" on syringe was used after 1830.
I believe the syringe is be made of chromium plated carbon steel which became all but obsolete when a stainless steel alloy found most suitable for surgical instruments came into being in 1912.
The syringe has a rubber end to its plunger which has cracked over time but is still intact.
There is some minor pitting to the metal body of the syringe, but is in good shape overall.
The measurements on the plunger run up to 20.
The set appears to have originally come with two needles which are now missing.
The box is in good condition with minor wear, it's front lock which slides left to keep the box shut works well.
Box size: 6-5/8 inches long by 2-7/8 inches wide by 1-1/4 inches high.
