My husband brought this medical sterilizer home from an old barn...who knows how long it had been in there. On the engraved plate, it has the patent date of February 20, 1900. It is unlike anything we have seen before and we cant' seem to find out much about them either. We did find an old advertisement about it. It said:

THE First Autoclave
with the
Eclipse Door.
Originatedin1 900
and developed to
keep pace with
the advances of
laboratory technique.

    Hello, I have this exact Sterilizer. I also found it in a barn and have not found anything on it except an advertizement, Have you found anything else out about yours. I'd love to know what this thing is worth.
