Sound and bougie set Public Deposited

A set of metal sounds and bougies in a wooden case, donated by Bertha L. Breuer, M.D., in June 1948. The finished wood case has a purple velvet lining and removable instrument tray. It measures 48 x 25.3 x 6.5 cm. A metal nameplate affixed to the outer lid reads "H.C. Jefferds, M.D." The set seems to be missing some of the original sounds. The case contains: 1) twelve metal sounds marked in English, French, and American scales, 2) nine olive-tipped bougies, 3) one double-ended sound, 4) metal catheter with double loop handle, 5) five soft rubber sounds, and 6) sound gauge card.
