    Elaborate Tiemann's Surgeon's Field Kit From the Civil War. This field surgeon's kit dating to the Civil War is nearly complete at 24 pieces. Manufactured by the Tiemann Company of New York City, the premier maker of surgical instruments, this rosewood-boxed surgeon's kit would have been used to perform surgery at battlefield hospitals.

    The implements included here are a saw, a complete set of scalpels, retractors, and clamps housed in the attractive velvet-lined box that includes three compartments. The maker's sticker of "G. Tiemann & Co., Manufacturers of Surgical Instruments, 67 Chatham St. N.Y." is on the upper lid inside the box. This box has an aged crackling of the wood at the top and actually has the original key which locks the box. This is a fine example of a Civil War era surgeon's kit that is nearly complete, a rare find in this area of collecting.
