Description
The scope (a) is a long, hollow metal tube open at both ends; at one end, the cylinder flares out into a shorter and wider cylinder; at the bottom of this cylinder is a short, hollow tube, also open at the end, which has a small opening running diagonally up its side; over this tube is a metal ring, textured at top and bottom but smooth in the middle, with an L-shaped opening; this ring slides around, and its opening permits a small knob on the handle (c) to be inserted into the first diagonal opening and then secured; the handle is another metal cylinder; at its top, which narrows slightly, is the knob for attachment; in its middle is a switch (that no longer slides), and its bottom widens slightly; a small circular hole in its bottom reveals two prongs, presumably electrical wiring; the top is also open and an electrical contact can be seen about a third of the way down; the obturator (b) is a long, thin metal tube with a round disk, corrugated on its side, at one end, and a metal bullet-shaped plug at the other; about a quarter of the way down is a round flange that is flat on top, then tapers into a short tube; this flange rests upon the part in (a) where the cylinder narrows away from the handle; and the tip of the plug protrudes from the insertion end of the scope when assembled.

Description
Proctology set in a case, which consists of (a) a sigmoidoscope tube that is made of hollow and cylindrical metal, with a round open tip and a round open end; there is a flat round piece attached perpendicularly to the end, that serves as a handle; there is a cm. scale stamped into the outside of the tube that is in increments of 5 cm, from 5 to 25; an obturator (b) fits into this tube; the obturator is made of a solid narrow cylindrical piece of metal with a large, heavy bullet-shaped tip at one end and a solid round handle at the other end; the sigmoidoscope obturator fits inside its tube, with the tip coming out of the tube's open tip and the handle fitting up against the tube's other end; also included in the proctology set is (c) a proctoscope tube; this is a hollow metal tube with an open bevelled tip and a round open end that has a slightly larger diameter than the rest of the tube; an obturator (d) fits into this tube; the obturator is made of a solid narrow cylindrical piece of metal with a large, heavy bullet-shaped tip at one end and a solid round handle at the other end; the proctoscope obturator fits inside its tube, with the tip coming out of the tube's open tip and the handle fitting up against the tube's other end; also included in the proctology set is (e) an anoscope tube; this is a hollow metal tube with an open bevelled tip and a round open end that has a slightly larger diameter than the rest of the tube; an obturator (f) fits into this tube; the obturator is made of a solid narrow cylindrical piece of metal with a
large, heavy bullet-shaped tip at one end and a solid round handle at the other end; the anoscope obturator fits inside its tube, with the tip coming out of the tube's open tip and the handle fitting against the tube's other end; there are two magnifying lenses (g,h) which fit onto the end of the sigmoidoscope tube; both of these lenses consist of very short lengths of hollow cylindrical metal tubing with a glass cover on one end and a round open end on the other end; the end with the glass cover has a larger diameter and a hatched pattern in the metal on the outside edges; all of the pieces described above (a-h) fit into a purpose-built case (i); this case is made of cloth-covered wood with a blue velvet lining on the inside; the case is rectangular in shape with a lid that is hinged at the back and has two metal clasps at the front; the inside of the case has built-in velvet-covered dividers that hold the instruments apart from each other; there are information labels on the inside lid, outside front and outside top of the case.
