A silver plated otoscope or auriscope for examining the external auditory meatus and the tympanic membrane, complete and in its original box.
There is minimal wear to the silver plate and a beautifully engraved stem reading Arnold & Sons Surgical Instrument Manufacturers Giltspur Street London with their overlying crest. They started business in 1866 and this piece dates to the late 19th century. There is a similar example in the London Science Museum.
