A late 19th early 20th century leather bound child’s wrist splint signed by Rainal Frères which is secured on either side with wavy blued steel supports.
Both surfaces are lined with fine leather which has been perforated to allow ventilation. The splint would have been secured in place by winding ligature or tape through the corset style hooks. The Rainal brothers (Léon and Jules of 23, Rue Blondel and 236-238, Rue Saint-Denis Paris) were renowned makers of quality orthopaedic corsets and between 1825-1925. Dimension 16 x 23 cm.
