A fine 1860s amputation and trephination set with instruments marked: GEMRIG. The lift-out tray retains the paper label: MANUFACTURED / BY / J.H. GEMRIG / 109 South Eighth St. / PHILADELPHIA.

The set is complete with its original sixteen instruments, and ten have ebony handles. The capital saw has a peculiar handle that is seen in sets by the English maker Wood, but only used in America by Gemrig. The instruments, case, and red lining are in superb condition.
