Braun's uterine syringe, glass and vulcanite, cased, probably English, 1860 to 1900
Uterine diseases were treated using this syringe during the late 1800s. The long syringe was screwed onto the glass barrel containing the liquid and then inserted into the vagina. The plunger handle attached to the barrel was pushed down and the medication dispensed internally. It may have been used to treat a variety of ailments affecting the reproductive system.
