Hammer and Pessary Ring. Medical Instruments that Look Like Designer Jewelry

Pessary Ring as Bracelet. Percussion Hammer as Brooch

While researching some antique objects on the interweb we stumbled upon an image of a pessary ring made in 1975. We’ve never used this contraceptive device so we didn’t recognize it as such. To us, at Mimi Berlin, this rubber band looks more like a bracelet; a modern design bracelet. And in our minds the percussion hammer could well be a brooch. .

(The medical items are property of the Purmerends Museum)

Online Stuff from Yesteryears

We found the images above via the online collection of National Dutch heritage. This wonderful imagebank is filled with thousands and thousands of products, ranging from stamps to glassware to well……stuff from yesteryears that can make the imagination run wild if you want to!

While we’re on the subject: click to view our post about on religious tongue piercings.

Percussion or Reflex Hammer

A reflex hammer is a medical instrument used by practitioners to test deep tendon reflexes. Testing for reflexes is an important part of the neurological physical examination in order to detect abnormalities in the central or peripheral nervous system. Reflex hammers can also be used for chest percussion.
