Made for the film 'Doctor Sleep', these instruments were designed by Claire Granger from the Doctor Sleep art department and based on surgical instruments held by the Science Museum, London. The commision was given to the Science Museum due to its experience with copying artifacts and working in the film industry. The instruments are silver-plated with artificial ivory handles and were used as action props in various scenes in the film.
