Name/TitleChrome Plated Obstetric Perforator
About this objectAn instrument that was used for obstetric surgery only. Typical of many instruments of this early antiseptic era, the forcep was chrome plated and over time, with continual sterilisation, the steel later deteriorated beneath the chromed surface and so there is now damage to the handle edges.
