106.  A c. 1780 antique amputation saw with a handsomely carved grip.  The instrument has the crown and star mark of the English surgical instrument maker James Stodart (1760-1823).  Stodart, a Fellow of the Royal Society, was considered a leading metallurgist of his day and worked with the chemist Sir Humphrey Davy and the physicist Michael Faraday.  The blade is tightened by using the spanner as illustrated.  This 18th century amputation saw is a classic type for the period of the American Revolution.  To have a matching spanner is a rare plus.
