Czermak type laryngoscope, in case, Berlin, Germany, 1855-1865

A laryngoscope views the larynx, or voice box. The larynx is in the upper part of the windpipe. This type of laryngoscope was introduced by Austro-German physiologist Johann Nepomuk Czermak (1828–73). He was interested in speech and sound. It consists of a laryngeal mirror. This reflects light down the throat.
