The pestle measures nearly 4.5 inches long, with the mortar being 1.25" high and 1.75 inches in diameter. Embossed on the base "The L.D. Caulk Company....". This enterprise which began in the late 19th century was a prestigious supplier of high quality dental supplies.
The condition is fine except for wear to the box as seen in the photo. The insert is complete but torn in places and wrinkled.
The instrument is made of what appears to be aluminum or stainless steel and is in in excellent condition. The syringe measures about 14 inches long x 3.5 inches wide. The box is complete and a bit tattered -- primarily at the seams. It sports 2 detailed labels as pictured. An unusual and rarely found dental tool of the trade.
The pestle measures nearly 5 inches long, with the mortar being 1.5" high and over 2" in diameter.
The condition is fine except for a tiny fleck on the lip of the mortar.
An attractive piece!
Dating to the 1940s, this unused outfit contains a small vial, 30 cotton pellets and 2 toothpicks. The box measures just over 3 inches high and will fit anywhere in your collection. Posted 3/26/10
Measuring just over 2.25 inches high, the lithography and Art Nouveau imagery are quite stunning. The condition is wonderfully preserved with minimal and faint paint loss to the tin. The box is complete and has minor wear from age and storage and sports its Art Nouveau styling similar to the tin. Just great!
The sign advertises the office of "James H. Groom. Dentist.", and remains in fine condition with deep-toned, original patina and with some very minor warping due to its many years of age. The lettering is actually impressed into the surface and is painted black. Any white marks appearing on the front of the sign are due only to light/sun reflection---the sign has a very even-toned coloration.
The sign has a hole at each corner to facilitate hanging, or it may be easily displayed upon a shelf!
A fabulous , rich-looking display piece with great "eye appeal"!
