A fantastic antique sterilization canister. The outer canister is made from copper with a brass plaque engraved with the the makers name. Hospital and Laboratory Supplies were based at 12 Charterhouse Square, EC1, London. We believe this great scientific piece to date from the early to mid 19th century. Eight glass petri dishes are included with the carry rack A fabulous antique laboratory piece, perfect for any collector or to use and enjoy.


Blackening and tarnishing to outer case of canister. Shows signs of wear and tear as it is old and has been used, but only adds to its character. Great decorative item which would look fantastic in any home or business interior.

Please look at photos closely as they form part of the item description.


12.5 cm diameter of canister, 23.5 cm height
