Leech Cupping Set

Medical antiques are rare, but do turn up in all sorts of places ranging from car boot sales, flea markets and antique shops to the major auction houses.

There are one or two specialist web sites which are listed on the links page on Phisick.com. eBay is a favourite haunt and there are one or two lists in most countries which are dedicated to medical and scientific items. If you have a piece to sell make sure you find these lists.

Pictured is an exceptionally rare "Fox's Leech Glass Cupping Set".

Note: Check Phisick.com for numerous images and complete details of each medical instrument shown.
