An exceptionally rare ‘Fox’s Glass Leech Cupping Set’ as shown in the Smithsonian book. The characteristic shape of the glass sets this aside from the usual form.
The scarificator which has sharp pointed blades (an earlier variation) is by W B Hilliard who started business in the 1830’s. The alcohol bottle is in perfect condition and is built into the set. It has a broken pontil in keeping with the set dating to pre 1850.
