This is a fleam from the Revolutionary War era. It has three posts with puncture points and one straight edge, and is possibly of American manufacture. The fleam was a tool used by surgeons for bloodletting: this design may possibly have been used on animals.
Circa Revolutionary War.
Approximately 3-5/8” in length and 1” in height and 5/16” in width (folded).
This is from a medical collection which we will be listing more of over the next few months. KEZAR CON-DB-25-13 LAIEX4/13
7 (Very Fine): The fleam has some small areas of wear and tarnish.
As with all my items, this piece is guaranteed original.
