A petit 19th-century pocket syringe carrying case by Parisian instrument maker J. Haran.
Syringe cases like these were carried in the pockets of high-class Parisian women, men, and physicians alike. The glass vial would most likely have contained an opiate solution prepared for hypodermic injection. This set is fashioned in a typical French style; the syringe fenestrated with volume markings on the piston in the measurement of minums, fitted with an adjustable ring that functions to regulate the amount of administered solution. The glass vial is equipped with a removable stopper at which the syringe is connected and the contents aspirated within.
