Extremely rare version of a common Viennese (Wien) brass scarificator. This item is identical in form to the pieces seen elsewhere on the site. The pieces all have a typical square brass construction with the heart or crown shaped depth screw and 5-6-5 blade configuration. This piece is unique in its ornate engraving and inscription of "Joh Jacob Fischer in Wien" and the addition of a 1755 date mark. The piece is contained in a wonderful leather covered pressed board box with an ornately marbled decoration.
