A rare set of medical crutches probably bespoke made for an officer of means who could afford to commission such an item. Usually these are plain wooden pieces with no metal or leather for that matter on them anywhere.They were recently acquired from a civil war medical collection in the Los Angeles area. This would make a great addition to any civil war or antique medical collection. MEASUREMENTS Crutches measure 6" deep by 8" wide by 31 tall and weighs 10b 10oz CONDITION In very good condition with some signs of use commensurate with age, there is wear and tear to the edges of the crutches specifically where the underarm would have rubbed against the leather.
