Right arm, with a doll's hand, for a young child with a congenital below elbow deficiency. The prosthesis has a leather extended 'cup' socket contained within a plastic forearm. There is a friction wrist rotary. The 'press-bar' on the wrist releases the hand to allow a split-hook to be substituted. A 'cushlon' and velcro harness appendage is used for retaining the prosthesis and for 'split-hook' operation. Made by Steeper c. 1962.
