English Trephine Set, c. 1750

Price: SOLD!!!!

Fantastic antique neurosurgical set in the original mahogany box with brass carrying handle. This English set was made by Dickinson and is ca. 1750. The handles of the instruments are walnut. It is all original and includes everything needed to burr a hole in the skull!!

The only missing pieces are a bone brush and scalpel. These can be replaced over time. There is some moderate surface rust which could be cleaned to make this set polish, but I think it looks great in its original state.

This is the exact same neurosurgical set featured on the hit Discovery Channel show FINAL OFFER. 

Please email Dr. Arbittier with any questions about this rare and impressive set!
