A Swiss Tonsil Guillotine or Tonsilotome Made by M. Schaerer A.G. This early 20th century Tonsilotome is the improved model guillotine with two cutting rings and barbed forks, which was invented in 1892 by M. Schaerer A.G in Moosseedorf (Berne) Switzerland. This Tonsil Guillotine was hailed as an "automatic" instrument, as it allowed a physician to complete the tonsilectomy with one hand in a single deft movement.
