Large Spring Lancet

A large animal spring lancet with adjustable guard. The brass case is 72 mm long. A heavy blade guard is adjustable by a thumbwheel to limit depth of cut. The Philadelphia maker's name "SNOWDEN" is stamped on the brass case. The hinged wooden case is leather covered and red velvet lined. Both inside and outside coverings show a great deal of age wear, but the box is in good condition. The lancet is in fine uncleaned condition.
