Stainless steel nozzle for use with either air/water or dental amalgam delivery tool, manufactured by Claudius Ash & Sons, England, circa 1910.

Claudius Ash & Sons first began when Claudius took over his father's gold and silver smithing business in the 1820s. Whilst following his father's footsteps at first, Claudius soon found himself receiving more requests for custom made dentures as no one was really making them that successfully at the time. Word of his fine craftsmanship soon spread and by 1850 Claudius had shifted his business focus entirely to making porcelain dentures, often set in gold plates. His family joined the business as it continued to expand and in 1924 Claudius Ash & Sons merged with De Trey & Co to form the Amalgamated Dental Company.

Previously owned by Dr Leopold Polack who operated a dental practice in Hawthorn, Victoria from the1950s-1970s.
