Feeding tools for nursing

These feeding tools - horns and cups - were used by nurses at St Bartholomew's Hospital in London and are now displayed in a showcase of the Hospital's Museum.

The horns, fitted with wax teats and marked with scales, were used until the end of 18th century for the feeding of infants and invalids1.
