Description
Wax models (moulage) of adenomyoma of the uterus and a follicular cyst and a thick-walled corpus
luteum cyst in the ovary on the left side; the right side shows a normal fallopian tube and ovary;
the models are made of oil-painted beeswax with talc, built up on a plywood base with gauze and
wire for extra support; (b,c) are made of wax only; (a) the model shows a uterus split open to
show a lesion of the thickening of the uterine endometrium walls; red spots indicate hemorrhaging;
the left side of the model shows an ovary enlarged and distended with a follicular cyst and
a corpus luteal cyst; the right side of the model shows a normal fallopian tube and ovary; (b)
shows a cross-section of the follicular cyst and the corpus luteal cyst seen in (a); (c) shows
a cross-section of the normal fallopian tube and ovary seen in (a); the red spot in the ovary
likely indicates a small normal follicle rupture which has not completely healed; the models are
painted to depict true colour

Research Facts
This bottle would have contained the Great English Remedy Sir James Clarke's Celebrated Female Pills or used as an early abortion pill. It was the 19th century way of having an abortion in the privacy of your own home. The bottle actually came with a pamphlet warning the pills "should not be taken during the first three months of pregnancy, as they are sure to bring on miscarriage". This basically told females, this will give you a miscarriage to get rid of your baby during the first three months. It's main active ingredient was Oil of Savin which was used for a long time to procure an abortion. It was also advertised "To married ladies the medicine is peculiarly suited. It will in a short time bring on the Monthly Period with great regularity." It was noted as early as 1857 that this was an "abortion pill" and many deaths to the women were attributed to it. There were also many court cases as well. The disclaimer "not to be taken during the first three months" was said to protect the proprietor from any wrongdoing. The proprietor used Job Moses as a agent in the United States and said his labels would be affixed to a bottle that read JOB MOSES.
