Price $

This is a museum quality preserved 1760 pelican tooth key or a hand made professional reproduction and first we’ve found (from a Dentist Estate).  In any case in our 50 years of business, it is a beautiful example of the horror of tooth pulling from late 1700s.  The Dental Pelican Tooth Key made of steel and appears to be a bone handle.  It measures 5.50 inches in length.  Most likely designed for a Childs mouth and rarely used.  Note the claw is adjustable for problem tooth and bolster to secure claw for elevation and extraction.  Adjustment nut needs vintage fork like screw driver for instrument modification.  Similar pelican keys are pictured and described in Bennion’s Antique Dental Instruments.  Instrument is in very good condition.  Pelican Tooth Keys are the Holy Grail of antique dental instruments and will highlight any collection.
