Research Facts
An English c. 1730 antique trephine set with fine gull wing trephine. The bone disk forceps elevator is that of Dr. Samuel Sharp (1709-1778), FRS, who was an accomplished surgeon at Guy's Hospital, London. This rare antique neurosurgical kit is thought to have been made by the surgical instrument maker Edward Stanton, At the Saw and Crown, in Lombard Street, London, who was active between 1738 and 1744.
