I think I might win this one.

I got a pair of bronze Roman forceps used in surgery. What a cool thing!

A 19th century French catheter, how exciting!

A hernia bistoury. Which has also taught me the word 'bistoury'. Cool.

Looks like an ancient fidget cube grin

Not very good at uploading.

I had a crystal glass.

What a fun site. I can see myself whiling away a few hours on it.

Neodrenal tablets!

This is what I got. That's really interesting.

WhatWouldPhyllisCraneDo Sun 17-Jan-21 21:42:24

A lightbulb. Fascinating stuff grin

Underwhelmed by my spring. Just a metal spring. No idea what it was for.

Autumnalleaves Sun 17-Jan-21 21:43:26

This is fun!

I got an Acupuncture needle

For those who are getting a blurry blue image, you have to click on it. Then it will show properly

MsAwesomeDragon Sun 17-Jan-21 21:46:20

Another one. I don't really know what a cupping set is, but it looks interesting.

OhYouBadBadKitten Sun 17-Jan-21 21:46:36

Or click on the collection number.

I think people are discovering the site. It's definitely getting slower. But that adds to the suspense. grin

Ah! Thanks @WhatWouldPhyllisCraneDo. This looks a lot better.

OhYouBadBadKitten Sun 17-Jan-21 21:47:42

I think cupping is to draw out ' bad stuff'. You light a taper in it to create a partial vacuum and then stick it on the skin. Gruesome.
