Medical Antique? Phlebotomy fleam and bleeding stick


Offered are two great items for collection and display. A fleam and a bleeding stick. The fleam is made of either steel or iron- Im not exactly sure - and is metalic gray in colour. Some poc marks and scratches are evident throughout the fleam but it is in very good condition. the blade is Stamped D&M and has a modest floral motif as seen in the pictures. The fleam is mounted on to an animal horn and folds into it with great ease.
IMPORTANT NOTE: T is a hairline fracture in the horn handle wich is approximately 13.38 mm long. It is nearly undetectable to the naked eye, and certainly very hard to see in the images. This fracture does not detract from the beauty or presentability of this item. Never the less, it is t, and I would urge caution while handeling this item.
