This beautiful set was made by Max Wocher of Cincinnati, Ohio. Wocher was in the instrument business from 1840 - 1900 and typically supplied doctors in the mid-west and those migrating west. This set came from a family in Nebraska but the nameplate is unmarked.
The layout of the instruments in this set and the capital saw with vertical slots is indicative of the 1850's. All instruments are proper to the set with one substitution and are marked M. Wocher. The set is missing a small pick up tweezer which has a substitution and a small amputation knife. The wooden handles on the instruments are beautiful. The interior of the case is lined in red velvet. The brass-bound mahogany box has a central key lock and two lateral swing latches. Circa 1850.
