A very rare amputation tourniquet, a variation of Tiemann’s Direct Pressure Tourniquet first marketed by him in the early 1840’s (Tiemann catalogue).

This instrument is much larger than the more common Petit’s Tourniquets which were made by various medical houses. Maker-marked and made by Samson, Paris, a contemporary of Charriere dating to the 1850’s. Near mint condition, all original and perfect in every way with original straps and pads.
