Cupping Therapy and Hijama Old instruments

French cupping set c.1890-1910

Late 19th century or very early 20th century french cupping set. Note the very simple design, the lack of attention to decoration and the switch towards clean lines and a more utilitarian item. This item was probably manufactured very close to the decline of bleeding as a treatment thus the lack of wear to the item.

Irish Cupping Set 1850

Nice hardwood boxed cupping set. The box is lined with purple velvet and has a nice unmarked copper cartouche on the lid. The scarificator is marked Lamprey, Dublin. The 1850 census from Dublin Ireland lists a Jones Lamprey as a cutler working at 29 Westmoreland St.
