A rare 19th century silver plated 4 blade vaginal speculum made by Meadows in 1869.
It works on a similar principle to the Graves speculum but the two small extra blades take their leverage from the main blades. A retaining screw fixes the blades in an open position. It is marked Maw Son and Thompson who were in business from 1870-1901
