Research Facts
This is the upper part to a combined sterilizer; the lower part is used for sterilizing instruments in boiling water to which 1% carbonate of soda was previously added; the upper part fits onto the lower part; dressings and bandages are steamed in perforated baskets placed in the upper section; the dressings could be kept in the containers until required for use; underneath the sterilizer were alcohol or gas lamps which heated the water; the "D.R.G.M." mark stands for Deutsche Reich Gebrameister, which means 'registered patent'; this sterilizer could have been made by Berlin's F & M Launtenschlaeger, the company who made the first instrument sterilizer in the 1880s and still specialize in surgical instrument sterilizers today
