Vintage pathology bag
This is the first one of these that I have encountered. A genuine vintage medical bag that has been used as a pathology bag.
The case itself measures 30cm tall, 38cm wide and 18cm deep. The bag contains 5 graduated drawers, a document pouch and a pull out bottle holder. The bottle holder still has 5 of the original bottles with stoppers and a couple of labels including platelet fluid and RBC diluting fluid.
The drawers are full of an assortment of items including a stethoscope, slide trays, pipettes, sample tubes and the key for the locks which was inside an envelope with a hand written label saying "spare key for path bag". Inside the document pouch is a card of notes on preparation of laboratory specimens.
The bag itself has the original stamp for Thackray Leeds who were a leading medical equipment supplier between 1902 and 1990. The case is in very good condition with just a few scuffs at the corners.
This is a great looking item that has been used for many years.
