Now this really is quite something, it's a 1940s surgeons lamp. It comes nestled in a beautiful velvet lined Morocco leatherette box I presume this has kept it suitably safe for the past 70 years because it is in superb condition, the russett red bakelite is mottled luminous and shiny as well as unchipped, the silk braided power supply wire is unchafed with bright colours and the stainless steel band with ebonite mounts is in bright unscratched condition. This truly is an engineering work of art and in superlative condition.
How many births has this device witnessed and how many patients have succumbed to ether or chloroform aneisthsis whilst under it's beady gaze. SO here you have it, a scarce medico-scientific collectable. Heck, you can even use it as a modern day radio doctor, utility and eccentricity personnified - simply super!
