Description / History:
Wooden pocket surgical kit with red velvet lined interior. Belonged to W.M. Roland. Box and many of the instruments were manufactured by Gemrig, who's name was in the business from 1840–1925. Instruments consist of scissors, scalpels, a plastic tube, and straight tip teasing needles.
While this kit is dated up until 1915 due to the wooden handles on most of the tools, it is more likely that the kit was produced around the time of the civil war (based on the style of the instruments).
