  2. Current Item

An attractively octagonal metal case with a domed lid containing a hypodermic syringe, vial, needles and file.

The outside of the case is ornately engraved with an art nouveau design. The glass vial has a composite top and is stained with the residue of its red brown contents which would likely have been a form of opiate solution for injection. The glass of the Pravaz style  syringe has hand etched graduations and the amount injected could also be limited by an adjustable screw in the plunger.
