An unusual and early electric surgical lamp set by the Cameron Surgical Specialty Company c1920s. Famous for their pioneering surgical and medical diagnostic and surgical lamps, this is the full kit with fittings for the ear, eye, various orifices and the odd cavity, including the head-mounted lamp as well. It includes the original 15 x 12" plush fitted case with almost the full array of original equipment. The pieces we can identify include: spreaders (yikes!), ear attachment, red bulb attachment, Vitrohm potential adjuster (looks like it screws into light sockets for power), 2 angled mirrors, printed envelope with spare bulbs, headpiece with plastic strap (the plastic has vitrified and a piece has broken off), tongue depressor in holder, angled mirror in holder (eyes or oral?), extension wall plug, stainless loops and probes in cylindrical case, 4 large blown glass extended bulbs, 2 steel brackets. There are about three empty fitted compartments from now missing items, but this set is mostly complete. The black paper covered case is in good shape with only some corner rubs, it is stamped DR. C. W. STREETS in gold, and this wonderful medical historical diagnostic artifact is in excellent condition with no chips, cracks, dents, bends, corrosion, major losses, damage or repairs. We have seen smaller kits for dedicated specialties (ears, eyes, etc.) but this appears to be the whole set in one case. Perfect for frightening your patients or for your collection.
