Kit is in excellent condition and is complete with all the instruments.

When closed he wooden case meas. approx. 15.75 x 5.00 x 3.50 inches. Box is of dovetail construction with a folding, recessed, brass handle on top of the lid. Front side panel has a half-moon shaped brass finger hold for lifting the lid and below it is a brass escutcheon with key hole. Hinges are also of brass. Wood exterior shows very little wear.

Upon opening the box, the interior is lined with a brownish/red felt that is in good condition. The brass escutcheon plate running along the top front lip of the box is engraved with “MATHIEU A PARIS” in script. This section of the case holds seven instruments, two large amputation knives, one large Catlin, two tenaculum and two small scalpels, all with crosshatched ebony wood handles and all marked “MATHIEU.” There is also a torniquet which is unmarked. When the torniquet is lifted out of its pocket a small hole is visible in the lining, otherwise all is excellent.

The drop-down top section of the lining is held in place by a brass fold-down handle locked in place by a turnbuckle. The plate holding the handle and turnbuckle is marked “MATHIEU.” Aligning the turnbuckle with a slit in the handle allows the handle to be lifted and open the upper compartment revealing a capital saw, artery forceps and a curved gnawing forceps. Only the saw is marked “MATHIEU”, the other two pieces are unmarked. This compartment also has a pocket containing needles and thread for sutures.

This really is a beautiful kit that will enhance any Civil War medical display.  [ad] [ph:L]
