Object description :

"Dental Art : Clé De Garengeot"
"The Garengeot key is an instrument used to extract lower molars. It was still in use at the end of the 19th century. It owes its name to that of its inventor: René-Jacques Croissant de Garengeot, French surgeon, born in Vitré in 1688 and died in Cologne in 1759. He was a remarkable surgeon and made important modifications to the technique and instrumentation of his art."

Our specimen is signed by its manufacturer "Croze"; it is a fine specimen; it comes from a collection of 12 pieces in stock with different signatures ( Charrière, Collin, others) and with handles in horn, ebony or boxwood (1);
