Small wrought-iron dental forceps, early 17th century
A rare small wrought-iron dental forceps, engraved and twisted, the front of which is adorned with a double face with furrowed brows and the opening of the forceps representing the mouth of the "patient" when opened. Despite the fact that it is made of iron, it is very light, which was necessary to allow the dentist to maneuver easily in the mouth.It's not just a simple medical tool, but a real little masterpiece !
Northern Italy. Early 17th century.
