LIMITED INFORMATION ON RITCHIE SURGICAL SUPPLIES: (the following excerpt taken from Glasgow University Archive Service) This advertisement for George B. Ritchie & Co., surgical instrument makers, in Glasgow University Magazine, 1 February 1933. It gives a particularly graphic view of an amputation carried out in the days before the introduction of anaesthetic. Note the woman (perhaps the patient's wife) covering her ears as the patient screams in agony, and the little boy catching blood in a bucket. A darkly humorous touch is provided by the "Home Sweet Home" plaque above the fireplace. Ritchie sold a wide range of products, including dissecting instruments, stethoscopes, laryngoscopes, osteology sets, and midwifery forceps. The firm also supplied more mundane medical equipment such as waterproof aprons and white coats. The University provided an important market for firms such as Ritchie's. Both staff and students required access to high-quality scientific and other precision instruments, whether to replace old and worn ones or to keep up to date with the latest technological advances. As a result, GUM regularly featured advertisements for manufacturers and suppliers. · stethoscope chest piece is clearly impressed: RITCHIE / GLASGOW · to guesstimate age: late 1800s – early 1900s (probably, about 1909) · most likely chrome - normal age related chrome loss · unscrews nicely to reveal concentric circular grooves to enhance transmission of sound, much like the early Bowles stethoscope chest piece · black plastic diaphragm · normal / usage age scuffs, buffs · untouched (polishing – cleaning up to the end user) · measures: 1 ½”diameter x 1 3/8” connection post PLEASE, READ: (do not pay until invoiced as e-bay’s calculator is not always accurate for shipments from Canada & does not take into account insurance) Shipping is expensive & I do my best to keep the cost down without sacrificing safe delivery.
