A fine French gilt and ivory four blade vaginal speculum signed by Robert and Collin. A high quality instrument with delicately engraved carving to the ivory handle.
This instrument has seen plenty of service but remains in perfect working order. This folding four blade of speculum was first introduced in 1840 by Ricord. Robert and Collin were instrument makers in the 2nd half of the 19th century.
