  2. About Phisick

Phisick is a collection of instruments and artefacts related to the history of medical, surgical and dental practice. The aim of this website is to celebrate the beauty and craftsmanship of these objects and their role in the history of medicine.

The collection started with a handful of objects used for teaching purposes in a London General Medical Practice.

From a few anatomy models it has grown into several hundred pieces spanning a number of different specialities.

Objects have been found from car boot sales, bric-a-brac stalls, dealers, auction houses and antique fairs around the world. The origin of most of the pieces is the UK and Europe, but there are also items from America and as far afield as Asia and the Australasias.

Archived items which are no longer present in the collection can be excluded using filters at the bottom of the left hand menu, but have been included by default.
